    OK, I have a bizarre issue that I'm hoping someone will have some insight on.

    I have a Dot Net Nuke 4.84 web site that allows users to upload files to the server via the RadUpload control on a RadWindow popup (Rad Controls for ASP.NET Ajax).

    This process works just fine and the users can upload both .doc and .mp3 files using this approach.

    The problem arises when I turn on Friendly URLs on the DNN web site (via Host Settings > Use Friendly Urls).

    When I do so, users can still upload .doc files, but they can no longer upload .mp3 files. The RadUploadContext.Current.UploadedFiles.Count == 0 when trying to upload a file with the .mp3 extension.

    I'm at a loss as to why this is occurring and how I can get the upload process to work for all files when Friendly URLs is turned on.

    Is this a known issue using the RadUpload control for Dot Net Nuke. Any ideas what might be going on and how to fix it?

    Thanks in advance,

    Jason

    Hey Jason,
    I haven't had any complaints regarding mp3 files from my users. I don't use radwindow, but this should not be a clue - radwindow is basically a separate browser window... You could check your site's modules/handlers - these could be the reason for the mp3 file uploads failing.

    Oh, by the way - what about the invalid files? Does the collection contain any files (possibly the mp3 files)?
    Cheers,

    Thanks Blaize,

    The invalid files collection is empty. It's a very frustrating thing :)

    As it turns out, it's not the file type, it's the file size.

    A 20 kb file can be uploaded OK, but a 135 kb file cannot - the RadProgressArea shows a progress bar that hangs on the first "chunk" of 39% complete. It never gets beyond that. If it can get the file in one chunk, it works, but if there's more than one chunk it hangs.

    This is now fixed.

    In the web.config for the DNN application, I placed the Friendly Url Http handler entry at the top of the list of Http handlers, and it worked like a champ.

    Hope this helps someone else.
