Script recorder hangs during file uploads

We've recently identified a problem with the ANTS Load script recorder that causes it to stop responding when uploading files to a web server. Please contact [email protected] for a fix if you do encounter this problem.

Details:

ANTS Load sets up a proxy and configures the web browser to send all requests through it. The ANTS Load script recorder stores the requests from the client and the response from the server before forwarding them. This process uses a simple socket, which reads until no more data is present.

The behaviour of the Internet Explorer browser now waits for a reply from the server before sending the POST data in a multipart/form-data post containing a file attachment. The web server should read the type of attachment, check to see if it is allowed to accept the attachment, then send an HTTP/1.1 100 Continue back to the client to signal that it is alright to send the rest of the data.

ANTS Load's proxy is not sending the HTTP/1.1 100 Continue back to the client, causing the script recorder to hang indefinitely.
