Default Cannot execute ASP in Windows 2003 Server

I have an ASP codes works properly in Windows 2000(for testing). When I move it to another machine with an OS of Windows 2003 Server. HTML works but the ASP can execute. It said "The page cannot be displayed
There is a problem with the page you are trying to reach and it cannot be displayed.".
I check the IIS Web Service Extension the status of ASP is Allowed.
Is there any components I need to install or I need to configure something.

Your error is a friendly error message, it doesnt explain the exact error in detail. Go into tools/internet options/advanced and uncheck the box that says 'show friendly http errors' Now you will get more detailed error messages. Post this message and we can tell you exactly what IIS setting you havnt addressed - I believe your problem is an IIS issue. There is a big difference between IIS on WIN 20003 (IIS 6.0) and previous versions. Enabling ASP, parent paths, sessions etc...
