asp_webserver thread: can't run ASP pages using Win2K/IIS 5.0


Message #1 by bmcelhany@h... on Thu, 8 Nov 2001 17:37:18
I just installed Win2K/IIS 5.0 on a new computer and I'm unable to run ASP 

pages. HTML files in the root directory run fine when I go to 

http://localhost/myFile.htm, but any ASP file returns an HTTP 500 error. I 

checked the Event Viewer and the following error message is generated:



The server failed to load application '/LM/W3SVC/1/ROOT'. The error 

was 'no such interface supported'.



I have installed this software a couple of times on different machines and 

never run into an issue. Does anyone have any suggestions? BTW, everything 

is just running locally on my computer for development/testing purposes. 

Thanks!

I've been doing some reasearch, and it seems that I'm only getting an 

error when I include the <%@ Language=JScript %> directive at the top of 

my ASP page. If I don't include the directive and just use VBScript, it 

works fine. Unfortunately, I need to use JavaScript for this project.

Try to do this,



  right hand click on the folder and choose web sharing, share this folder. (You should be able to do this since u install the W2k
and IIS). Then open ur IE or Netscape and type in localhost/foldername/aspfilename.asp



  Good luck

Actually, this folder is already shared (alias is /) with read and write 

permissions, and script application permissions.
