Why can't I access Request.Form() when uploading?

You will get errors from IIS in both of the following cases: 
  • You try to access the form collection (request.form) after calling request.binaryread, or
  • You try to access the incoming binary stream after calling request.form.
The errors you receive are typically one of the following: 
    Request object error 'ASP 0206 : 80004005' 
    Cannot call BinaryRead after using Request.Form collection 
    Request object error 'ASP 0206 : 80004005' 
    Cannot call Request.Form collection after using BinaryRead 
The two major commercial upload components have their own .form collection that you can call, and this is found in their documentation: 
Dundas.Upload, a free upload control, also has this capability: 
If you're using one of the other components, contact the vendor.
