FIX: Internet Explorer cannot attach a file to a Web form if the file is not in the root directory in Windows CE .NET 4.2

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
You may select a file to attach to a Web-based form, such as a file attachment to an e-mail message. When you do this, the Web form may report an error, or the file may not actually be sent with the form.
The browser strips the path name part of the file name. Therefore, without the path name, the file name only references the root folder.
