I have only started using MapServ but it is really good to work with. At
present I am running it on an XP machine with IIS 5.1 and Internet Explorer
6.0.2. I just download the MapServ Win binarys and it all work fine (with a
HTML interface). However when I tried to run Mapplet, I keep getting the
exception: com.ms.security.SecurityExceptionEX [mapplet.init]: cannot
I can't figure it out. It is an XP problem or a Mapplet issue ?? I have
tried changing a number of things in the demo.html, the demo_init.html, I
have even gone through the code supplied with Mapplet (I didn't change or
re-compile it though).
