This is a downloaded utility in a CAB file, so it's a browser related ActiveX
control using ADO to stream the images to the server.
It's signed and ends up in the windows/downloadedinternetfiles/ folder.
The error is that it can't read from the %temp% directory where the resized
images are. I'll be talking to the user today to find out if the images are
resizing OK (I think they are) and then for sure know that's it's read
I'll also keep the safemode trick in mind if I need it ...
Thanks for the replies,
