Default How is ASP.net version 1 or 2 defined?

A classical ASP program can be coded on a text editor, e.g. NotePad. For VS.net programming, we have ASP.net 1.0, ASP.net 1.1, and ASP.net 2.0. How were these different versions defined? By VS.net 2002, 2003, or 2005?

Is there any way we can use those old ASP programs coded from Dreamweaver, FrontPage, or ColdFusion?

TIA,
Jeffrey

Hi Jeffrey,

This is all managed by IIS, the Web Server.

Depending on the configuration and installation of your web server, it can be configured to run all technologies at the same time.

So, yes, you can run old asp pages on your new webserver, but you need to make sure your server is configured for it. You can do this in the IIS Manager, under Web Service Extensions. When you allow both ASP and ASP.NET the next step then is to configure each site to run against a specific version of ASP.NET. You do this on the ASP.NET tab of the Properties dialog for a site in IIS.

Take a look here: http://www.spaanjaars.com/QuickDocId.aspx?quickdoc=254 for more info about enabling extensions.

Cheers,

Imar

Hi Imar,

Thanks for your email. My question on using classic ASP is not clear. In fact, I'd like to know how to include some old HTML and/or ASP files into the new ASP.net projects/solutions, i.e. how can a Windows or Web form run those old HTML/ASP files?

TIA,
Jeffrey

It depends on how you define "use those old ASP programs".

If you just want to keep running your existing ASP applications, then you should have no problem. They can even be mixed with .NET applications. That is, you can link or redirect from an ASP page to an ASPX page and vice versa.

If by "using" you mean reusing parts of your ASP pages, like includes, then this is partially possible. ASP includes can still be used within ASPX pages to some extend. However, you won't be able to call ASP functions from your ASPX pages.
Also, it's not really recommended to to do this anymore. ASP.NET now has much better ways to include content, like classes in App_Code and user controls.

If this doesn't completely answer your question, please specify "use those old ASP programs" in more detail...
