How to create web shares for Solo when using Windows 7?

Jump to solution

I am working on a COBOL web site using Net Express 5 and Solo.

For my images I want to use a web share directory "images". Solo by default has shares for cgi-bin and COBOL and has a comment "To share files, just start Windows Explorer and right click on the directory you want to share, then select "Properties" and the "Web Share" tab."  This worked for Windows XP, as Explorer gave the option to create web shares.  Under Windows 7 the only way I know to create web shares is via IIS - but there is no site for Solo, so I cannot create a web share or virtual directory.  Solo works happily without IIS on a test machine.

The SOLO server was designed for older operating systems, and it is not fully supported on the more recent versions of Windows. Our recommendation is to use the web server that you intend to deploy the web applications to.
