FileUpEE V5
Cannot create FileUpEE object after installing FileUpEE
After installing FileUpEE, especially in situations where you are upgrading or reinstalling the program, FileUpEE throws an error when creating the object.

  • .NET:
    "Exception Details: System.NullReferenceException: 
    Object reference not set to an instance of an object."
  • ASP:
    "Active Server Pages, ASP 0241 (0x80004005)
    The CreateObject of '(null)' caused exception C0000005.
This problem may be caused by missing or invalid MSXML.dll files on the system. The source of the error can be confirmed by running a program called DebugView. Simply install DebugView and run it before trying to create an instance of FileUpEE, or running one of the sample pages. When using DebugViewer over a remote connection you have to make sure the "Capture Global Win32" (under the 'Capture') menu is checked. If it catches an error that mentions FileUpEE needing the MSXML.dll installed in order to run, you will need to install these files manually on your server. FileUpEE is dependent on the MSXML.dll versions 3 and 4 for creating SOAP packages.

The main Microsoft site for XML downloads is here. You will require both MSXML versions, 3 and 4 in order to run FileUpEE.

The files are also available in a zip archive at the bottom of this page. After installing both MSXML versions, try running the FileUpEE samples and you should no longer get any errors.
