eCart, PayPal Pro UK, PayFlow and Sandbox

I feel sure this must have been covered before, but for the life of me I just can't find any noddy's guide as to how to configure eCart using PayPal Pro UK and Sandbox. Even if I could get it to work, I can't figure out how to re-run the wizard to untick the "use sandbox" checkbox!

Having given up with PayPal Pro UK, I searched PayPal's own forums which suggest that that in order to test the UK version of PayPal Pro using the Sandbox it's far simpler to use PayFlow. I tried it out, amd although I managed to get a successful PayPal Express transaction, a local checkout entering credit card details just won't work. I get an error message on the confirm.asp page as follows: -

"Server object error 'ASP 0177 : 800401f3'

Server.CreateObject Failed

/WA_eCart/Adv_CO_Scripts/PFPro_VB.asp, line 31


Now, this might be because I am not using https yet (the site's still very much in the development stage).

My preference is to go for PayPal Pro UK still, so if there's any basic documentation other than the Quick Start Guide I would be grateful for a link!

Incidentally, there is a bug with eCart 4.5.0 so that an opening quote is missed out at line 143 of /WA_eCart/Adv_CO_Scripts/PP_PayProUK_VB.asp (this is for the PaPal Pro UK option). It's easy to fix, but I thought you might like to know.
