I am using with IIS6 and have created two web instances with VB.NET and ASPX.
Both works fine.
In the first web instance I could open the EXCEL or WORD application without any problems.
In other web instance I got following error:
"An exception occurred during a WebClient request."
Both web instances have the same content!
I had copied the content from the first into the second web instance.
The properties in IIS6 for both instances are equal.
The only difference between both instances is that they have access to different database content. The database is MS SQL5.
You see this example step with clicking the right mouse to see the popup menu with "Word" and "Excel" directly on this report.
By clicking on Excel the content of this report should be transfered automatically into Excel and then downloaded.
Can you please show me which steps I should do so that this problem can be solved?

Are you calling Word or Excel in your ASP.NET code? If so, not only is that a bad idea but it's also not supported. See:
