URLScan and the VB Resource Kit


I haven’t tried this out myself, but Mark Hurd posted a useful comment to my VB Resource Kit post…

Downloaded and installed the RK on a machine with enough free disk and .NET 1.1.

No errors were displayed by the installer, but there was a “page not found” IE Window showing…


To save everyone else’s time: URLScan, as installed by W2k SP4, has a default setting that bars URLs with dots in the path (except for the extension)!

Hope that helps out anyone else who might have hit this same problem!!
