Sub directories loosing path


My apologies for posting this in the main Tigra Family site... didn't realize there were different forums...

Anyway:

I'm so sorry to ask this basic question, but i can't find a fix!

I've got the directory path for the menus set to:

var TMenu_path_to_files='/main/menu/';

The actual website is at "http://[localComputerName]/main"
where [localComputerName] is the name of my computer

The default page works fine from the root of the site--- "http://[localComputerName]/main/Default.htm" works fine. Anything in a sub directory doesnot. (example: "http://[localComputerName]/products/Default.htm". Here is what I know:

All of the page's graphics are set to "/main/images/[file]" and they work fine both from the root and from within subdirectories. So i know that "/main/menu/" is the right path

Everyithing works great if I replace the TMenu_path_to_files value with 'http://[localComputerName]/main/menu/', but this isn't a workable solution since I'm copying to a remote website once it goes live.

So, it appears that the path is becoming broken in some way... as though it is a virtual path and not the absolute path I hoped it would be...

What am I missing? Thanks!

Did you try taking out the "/" before "main" like follows:-
"main/images/[file]"

Yup. That breaks it everywhere (root and sub-directories).

I forgot to mention: I'm on IIS and editing things in FrontPage, although I don't think that matters...
