I have the same problem Wendy posted a few months ago, but I don't see an answer to her post.
I am trying to get punctual.aspx to run, but all I see is the html message, not the result of the code (i.e., the system time).
I tried everything suggested in the book, including uninstalling and reinstalling IIS, but nothing works. I also tried to run one of the sample files from www.asp.net
(sample 4, I think), but got the same result: everything other than plain html tags was ignored.
I am running Windows XP Pro, and have downloaded and installed the .NET Framwork 1.1 and the SDK, as well as MDAC 2.7. There is also a program on my computer called Borland C# Builder, and I notice that my "aspx" files are interpreted by the computer as "Borland C# Builder aspx files" -- i.e., that's the description given beneath their icons.
Any help would be appreciated.
