I know this is an old post. but just in case if somebody stumbles on this post just like me. You need to register the asp.net framework on iis in order to get aspx files running.

go your framework version directory under windows folder using a command prompt. usually it will be like this

start -> run -> type in cmd and click the ok button.
then enter the following
>cd windows\microsoft.net\framework\v2.0.50727
>aspnet_regiis -i

This should do. The 'v2.0.50727' above is the version of the framework.

First of all, I'm a newbie, so forgive me. I'm running IIS 5.1 on Windows XP Pro and I'm just trying to do something really simple.
I'm just trying to test out loading a page on from my local computer, http://localhost/localstart.asp". When I run this local address on Firefox, it loads the page fine without any username/password authentication box.
But when I run this in IE 7, a username/password authentican prompt always appears. I'm trying to get rid of this prompt, so I can load the page without typing in any username/password.
And even when I enter the username and password in the authentication prompt, it still cannot log me in or give me access to the page.
1. Enabling Anonymous access and allowing IIS to control password.
2. Enabling Anonymous access NOT allowing IIS to control password.
3. Disabling Anonymous access, but enabling Integrated Windows authentication.
I really need to get this fixed. Please advise. Thanks!
