hi


In my windows server with XP OS i hav installed IISv6.1.
My problem is when i put .asp file in desktop or in wwwroot
of inetpub its gives a message windows cant open this file.
generally all thats required for asp file to run is IIS .and its already installed.
wht else do i need to run it?
Is it that the some version of IIS dont support ASP ?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Plz. advice me..........................

tnx

You cannot see an asp file in the webrowser if u have it on your desktop, it has to be in the wwwroot. I know this statement might be stupid and i dont mean to be mean but u cannot double click and expect your asp file to open in a browser like and html file does, u need to run it through the browser url will be something like localhost/test.asp

hello once again

I hav put the file in wwwroot and tried to open it thr browser using
http://localhost.xyz.asp but still it is not running.
and one mor thing is that if asp is enabled in a machine then
it will show the file with asp icon like (...3.yellow wheel) . but in my case
case it is not showin.
should i try installing different version of IIS ??

the icon is just to show which program a particular file type is associated with. so if u right click on the file and choose properties, then on the general tab, where it says opens with u can change it to whatever application u want to open the file, i think the yellow wheel is visual studio, not too sure though :)

did u find a way to run asp.. else u have a simple small tiny webserver to run asp...
if still looking do let me know.

like http://localhost/filename.asp
