Subject Re: File Upload Exception - request doesn't contain a multipart/form-data or multipart/mixed stream, content type header is application/x-www-form-urlencoded

I tried both.
the thing is, apart from the file parameter in the form there is another
hidden field that contains a text value.
if i use multipart/form-data, tht hidden field comes up as null.
