Permissions for Hosting Word Documents

P: 1

Our application (ASP.NET - C#) lets users edit and manage Word (OpenXML) documents that are hosted on the server. I am using Client Side VBScript functions to handle some of the editing functions including saving the document to a folder on the server. For the save functionality, I am using the following function call :

Document.SaveAs "http://server/savefolder/savefile.docx"

I have given "Full Control" permissions on savefolder to both the "NETWORK SERVICE" and the "IUSR_MACHINE" users. Yet, the above call fails. The error number returned is 5096. The error message is some gibberish that doesn't make any sense.

The server is Windows 2003 and the IIS version is 6.0. I have installed the OpenXML SDK 2.0 CTP on the server.

I can successfully read and print documents.

Does anyone tell me what I am doing wrong? or what additional settings need to be in place?

Thanks much!
