I have been trying to setup the 2.5.1 Pro version on a Windows Server with IIS 6.0. When running the examples, they either produce blank Word documents or corrupted Word documents. My custom code produces a blank Word document. (Note that the free version of PHODOCX seems to run fine on this server.)

From the forums, it appears this can occur when there are permission problems with PHP or the Network Services. As a developer, I am not an expert on these configurations, but hopefully somebody can provide more specific information to help me solve the problem, or allow me to communicate the required changes to our server administrator.

I ran check.php here is the output:

Your PHP version is 5.3.17 => OK
Your Zip extension version is 1.11.0 => OK
Your XSL extension version is 0.1 => OK
Your Tidy extension version is 2.0 => OK

Here is the php error log output when running the List.php example:

Hello,

You're getting an access deny when writting to temp folder. You can return a custom temp directory in line 6156 (method getTempDir) or set it in construct method (second parameter).

Regards.

Thanks. Based on this help, I am posting my solution for anyone else who may encounter the same Temp directory access rights issue.

A modified List.php example is shown below. I initially had problems with this solution because I only used the relative template path and not the relative path to the actual template [u]document file[/u] in the constructor.

My full solution also involved creating a docx and Temp directory under the examples directory:

v2.5.1/examples/docx
v2.5.1/examples/Temp

The new Word document is created in the docx directory. Note that I later moved the Temp directory to a better location for our server. Also note that your custom code files will likely have different relative paths than the example projects.

[code]

$docx = new CreateDocx("../../templates/phpdocxBaseTemplate.docx", "../Temp");

$valuesList = array(
'Line 1',
'Line 2',
'Line 3',
'Line 4',
'Line 5'
);

$paramsList = array(
'val' => 1
);

$docx->addList($valuesList, $paramsList);

$docx->createDocx('../docx/example_list');
