New Frequently Asked Questions

Question: The demo allows you to enter data, and see it immediately. On my installation, it says "Saving Complete". If I refresh the screen, it shows the home page again. How does it load automatically on your demo?
Answer: Change the line Response.Buffer = False to Response.Buffer = True in the file bfn.asp ...For testing, it's good to see verification that the database is working, so I leave Response.Buffer = False when I test The Aquarium, and it's that way by default.

Question: Your background is different than my installation. How do I change the background without coding?
Answer: In your images folder, replace the file bg2.jpg with your own custom JPEG image. bg2.jpg is 760x760 pixels.

Troubleshooting Help:
Error: Can't find Data Source?
Answer: See step 2 of the instructions included in the README.TXT to setup your Data Source (DSN), and give it a try.

Error: Microsoft VBScript runtime (0x800A0046)
Permission denied
/aquarium/counter.asp, line 27
Answer: Open Internet Information Services under Administrative Tools. Right-click on your CMS or Aquarium folder and click Properties. Check the box labeled "Local Path" -> Write and Read should be checked.

It still says: Error: and I search the net and Permissions fixes aren't working.
Answer: This error comes up if your Operating System or Internet Informtion Manager permissions are not set for Write access. Good luck!
