Default IIS and Microsoft Management Control

I'm new to ASP and am trying to set up the IIS server on my computer.

I've installed MMC and am trying to go to the http://my_server_name/localstart.asp. My server name is OWNER-GBKJBYVJX(local computer) I don't know how much of the name I have to include but I'm getting an error message "This page cannot be displayed"

That is a generic error message. First, uncheck "Show Friendly HTTP Errors" in your copy of Internet Explorer (Tools -> Options -> Advanced).

Then reload the page

Then scroll down a bit further till you see the real error message. Eg, if the server can not be located, you will see "Can not locate server or DNS error".

If the page can't be found, you'll see:

"404 Not Found"

If an error occured, you will see:

"500 Internal Server Error..." (plus error message and details). Post that to this group.

Try using "localhost" instead of your server-name, e.g. http://localhost/localstart.asp.

Now I'm getting an error "Page cannot be displayed"

Error Type:
Active Server Pages, ASP 0134 (0x80004005)
The object has an invalid ProgID of 'MSWC.MyInfo'.
//global.asa, line 1

Looks like there is an object being instantiated in the global, but the server can't find that object. Is the DLL where 'MSWC.MyInfo' comes from registered correctly?

Don't know much....But your server's name looks a bit out of ordinary....
try changing it to a simple one...
and thats easy...
from your My Network places...choose the identiy tab..and rename your computer to a simpler one...

Maybe that helps..
