Error "Exception caught when processing request" occurs when uploading file(s)
When uploading one or more files with FileUpSE in ASP, the following error may occur: "Exception caught when processing request."

This issue is most commonly caused by a problem with FileUp when installed in COM+ in some configurations.

The FileUpSE installer presents the user with an option of installing FileUp in COM+. If you do not have a need for using FileUp in COM+ and have installed it there, removing it from COM+ and registering it as a standard COM component should eliminate this error.

How do I know if I need FileUp in COM+?

Most of our customers do not put FileUp in COM+. FileUp is most commonly used in COM+ when it is desired to perform transactional uploads or when it is desired to isolate FileUp from other applications. If you determine that you do not require FileUp in COM+, proceed with the following instructions.

Removing FileUp from COM+

To remove FileUp from COM+ and register it as a COM component:

1. Stop IIS

At a command prompt, run iisreset /stop.

2. Remove FileUp from COM+

This can be done automatically or manually:

  • Automatic removal:
    1. In Windows Explorer, go to the FileUp program folder
      ("C:\Program Files\SoftArtisans\FileUp")
    2. Double-click on the file "SAFileUpTXUnInstall.vbs".
  • Manual Removal:
    1. Open the "Component Services" located via the Control Panel/Administrative Tools.
    2. Navigate to the FileUp Package: Component Services > Computers > My Computer > COM+ Applications > FileUp
    3. Right-click FileUp. Select Delete.

3. Register safileup.dll

  1. At the command prompt, navigate to the directory containing the dll. If it is in the default location, you would run: cd \Program Files\Softartisans\FileUp
  2. Then, run regsvr32 safileup.dll to register the FileUp dll.

4. Restart the webserver

At a command prompt, run iisreset /start.

5. Test FileUp to ensure it has been properly configured

We recommend running our Simple Upload Sample: http://<servername>/SAFileUpSamples/UploadSamples/Simple/form.asp (on your server)
