To fix the problem when you want to upload multiple files and you encounter this error :  Cannot run Windows SharePoint Services on this page …

Follow these steps :

You should make some changes to Upload.aspx file in layouts folder. But first make a copy of this file as a backup and then do these changes to the copied version. So you can move the original to another location and use the copied version to test if it’s successful or not.

  1. Open your copy of upload.aspx with appropriate application like Visual Studio or a simple one like Notpad. Search for <input TYPE=”hidden” NAME=”_charset_” VALUE=”utf-8″><!–webbot bot=”FileUpload” endspan i-checksum=”45034″ –>
  2. Update the following string as follows <input TYPE=”hidden” NAME=”Cmd” VALUE=”Save”><!–webbot bot=”FileUpload” endspan  –>
  3. Save your file.
  4. Reset IIS
  5. Now you should be able to upload multiple files in sharepoint document libraries :).
