ASP FAQ Tutorials :: Classic ASP 1.0 :: Files/Directories & FSO :: Why is 'the operation completed successfully' an error message?


Why is 'the operation completed successfully' an error message?

I still don't get the logic behind this error message. When using the file system object or wscript shell, you may have come across this error: 
 
Server object error 'ASP 0177 : 800a004c' 
Server.CreateObject Failed 
/<file>.asp, line <line> 
The operation completed successfully. 
 
or 
 
Server object error 'ASP 0177 : 800a0035' 
Server.CreateObject Failed 
/<file>.asp, line <line> 
The operation completed successfully.  
 
or 
 
Microsoft VBScript runtime (0x800A0035) 
File not found
 
Despite the "success" indicated by the text of the error message, this usually indicates that there was a permissions problem accessing a file or folder with Scripting.FileSystemObject or Wscript.Shell. If the former, make sure that IUSR_<machine> has appropriate privileges on scrrun.dll (found in your windows\system32 folder) and also whatever resource you are attempting to access. If the latter, make sure IUSR_<machine> has appropriate privileges on the wshom.ocx file (also in your system32 folder). 
 
Also, make sure you are pointing to a valid file or folder!
