Hi Galvin,

OK, let's start from the beginning.

- You're using Greenstone v2.70w, correct?

- Are you using Apache or IIS?

- Please start with the GLI client (ie. client-gli.bat). The GLI applet
adds another layer of complexity that we don't need while debugging this
problem.

- Choose File -> Open. You're asked for your username and password, then
do you get a list of collections?

- The collection files should be in C:Documents and
Settings<Username>Application DataGreenstoneGLIcollect. The
"Application Data" folder is usually hidden, so make sure your Explorer
is set to show hidden files.

- Are there any errors showing in the client-gli.bat DOS prompt?

Regards,

Michael
