Security/Permission issue with OWC 11.0 on a Windows 2003 server running IIS 6.0

Hi all,

I've got what I think is a security/permission issue related to using the
OWC 11 components on a Windows 2003 server running IIS 6.0. My web app has
a client side
Excel grid, and it also creates an server side OWC Excel component to do
some formatting. This app all runs just fine and dandy on a Windows 2000
server. It also runs fine on a Windows 2003 server that has IIS set to run
in IIS 5.0
isolation mode. But, when I try and run my app on a Windows 2003 server
running IIS 6.0 I get a
message when I try and display my grid about the XML not being formatted
correctly. This error message is usually the result of a failure with the
the server side OWC Excel component. If I run my app with a case that
doesn't require the
server side OWC Excel component to be created, I don't have this problem.
So I'm
thinking that I need to grant permission on something - the OWC files, ???
...., to
someone - the IIS_WPG group, ASPNet worker account, ???. I'm just not sure
what needs
access to what. Does anyone have any experience with this ?

I've posted this message in the
microsoft.public.dotnet.framework.aspnet.security and
microsoft.public.office.developer.web.components groups also but I haven't
gotten a response so I thought I'd try here. If this is the wrong place,
can someone suggest a more
appropriate newsgroup
Thanks in advance,
Nick
