Upload without user interaction?

You can also upload files from client-side without interaction of user (for example one specified file o set of files)

      Q: The program looks very nice. I am only wondering if the following is possible. Is it possible to upload a file without user interaction? So that the user doesn't need to select the file to upload.
      I want this to be an automatic process. I know the files that need to be uploaded, so when I open the upload.asp page, I want the upload progress be executed automatically. If this is possible, where can I find it in your help?

      This functionality has some of very old versions of internet browsers. There is a big security problem with such function - imagine what you can to do on a client computer with such security leak ...
      So this is not possible in standard HTML and JavaScript/VBScript now - because of security reasons. You cannot access files on client computer in safe-scriptable code, of course.

      We can use some work-around for such work, of course - using unsafe code - Scripting and ADODB objects. I wrote a short article with full VBS source code at https://www.motobit.com/tips/detpg_uploadvbsie.htm.
