I tried the path info mentioned and still no luck.  Any other suggestions?


Correct path to image directory as below:

- Create tmp directory under C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\workshop\

<input type="hidden" name="map_web_imagepath"

<input type="hidden" name="map_web_imageurl" value="/workshop/tmp">

- Create tmp directory C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\
<input type="hidden" name="map_web_imagepath"

> Hi,
> I feel like a bozo for having to ask this but I am totally lost with
setting up MapServer for IIS - the instructions are not all in one place. I
am running Windows 2000 Server with IIS. I followed the install
instructions to a "T" but the MapServer demo does not work. This is what I
have done
> 1. Copied mapserv.exe to "C:\Inetpub\Scripts"
> 2. Copied directory "Proj" to "C:\"
> 3. Copied the files in directory "lib" to C:\WINNT
> 4. Test MapServer with http://localhost/scripts/mapserv.exe? and I receive
the message No query information to decode. QUERY_STRING not set. which is
> 5. Downloaded A copy of the MapServer Demo and unzipped it into
> 6. Modified the index.html parameters to show my configuration or what I
believe is my configuration
> <form name="demo" method="GET" action="\scripts\mapserv.exe"
> <input type="hidden" name="map"
> <input type="hidden" name="program" value="\scripts\mapserv.exe">
> <input type="hidden" name="root"
> <input type="hidden" name="map_web_imagepath" value="\tmp\">
> <input type="hidden" name="map_web_imageurl" value="\tmp\">
> 7. Ran the index page and called one of the demos and the map image does
not appear in the resulting page just the little x indicating that it could
not find the image
> Anyone have any ideas on what configuration or installation steps I missed
or how I can resolve my prolems.
> Or more importantly does anyone have an all encompassing install and setup
instructions for IIS?
> Thanks in advance and hope some out there can help.
