System Requirements

Server
IIS 5.0 or later (Windows 2000 or later). 
OLEDB 4.0 Jet drivers (MDAC 2.1 or later, 2.5 or later recommended).

The database is supplied in Access 2000 format, but Access is not required to use the sample.

Client - Viewing
Any web browser.

Client - Editing
Internet Explorer 4.0 or later (5.0 or later recommended).
DBPix Image Control version 2.0 or later (installed automatically if not already present).

Installation

Unzip the file into a new folder on your IIS web server, ensuring that the directory structure is reproduced. 

Check that the database (.mdb) file is writable by web users (for testing give 'everyone' write permissions if in doubt). 

Ensure that the IIS configuration allows script access to the top-level folder. 

Walkthrough

Connect to your web-server at the url corresponding to the installation drectory.
A list of items is displayed, with a thumbnail and some textual data for each one.
Click one of the images to display the high resolution image.
Go back to the first page and click 'Edit'. On the Edit page click 'Load' to select a new image from the filesystem, then click 'submit'. You are taken back to the first page, which shows the updated item.
