LoadPicture - problem!

Hello!

I've created a PDF report and trying to load a picture using
LoadPicture fucntion. It works fine on my computer but it gives an
error on some other computers - permision denied, or something similar.

Code:
----------
Dim myImg, fs
Set fs= Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
if not fs.fileExists(img) then exit sub
set myImg = loadpicture(img)
iWidth = round(myImg.width / 26.4583)
iHeight = round(myImg.height / 26.4583)
----------

File is found but when trying to load I get something like permision
denied.

img =
Server.MapPath("../../../")&Session("IG").getValue("UploadDir")&arr(30, i),"/","\")

Application is not stored in a directory different by the IIS's Home
directory. I have a virtual directory for accessing the application, I
don't know if this influences in some way.

some web hosts won't allow this type of folder reference :

"../../../"

It's called a parent path, by default IIS6 disables the use of parent paths.
Rather than enable this 'feature' use an absolute path instead.
