Cannot create ASP File

I have Windows 2000 and recently included Internet Information Services. I
then created a simple ASP file and clicked on it. The Open With dialog
appears asking me to select a program. I copied an existing ASP file,
test.ASP from another computer where it runs successfully. When I copied it
to my computer it changed to test.ASP auto file. The other computer runs
Windows XP. I am not sure is this is the issue. I verified the IIS is up
and running on my computer. Is there anything that can be done to correct
this?

While the article that Ed cited is good, it seems to assume that one
already knows how to run an asp file.

One cannot run an asp page by double-clicking it in Explorer. One has to
use a browser to request it from a web server, so, the asp file needs to
be put in a folder under inetpub/wwwroot and requested via
http://localhost/foldername/test.asp

I typed http://localhost/Rmtest01/Rmtest.asp where Rmtest01 is the folder and
Rmtest.asp is the file, but I still got the message, page not found. Since I
have never ran an asp file on this computer, do you know if there is anything
else that has to be checked?

Is the file called rmtest.asp in the folder named
c:\inetpub\wwwr oot\rmtest01 ?

Oct 28 '07 #6
Yes. The htm file runs fine.

Yes. I also put the file in C:\Inetpub\wwwr oot\ and tried to run as
http://localhost/Rmtest.asp but it still could not find the file. Could this
be a security issue?

I mentioned that it worked with htm but it was when I clicked on it and it
went to:
C:\Inetpub\wwwr oot\Rmtest01/RmHTMLtest.htm

When I typed
C:\localhost\Rm test01/RmHTMLtest.htm it failed.

No, I am talking about opening your browser and navigating to
http://localhost/Rmtest01/RmHTMLtest.htm. It is totally irrelevant that it
runs when clicking it in Explorer, except that it confirms its presence
under wwwroot. Maybe you indirectly answered that question but I am not
sure. So again: can you navigate to the html page in your browser by
entering http://localhost/Rmtest01/RmHTMLtest.htm in the address bar? If
not, then IIS may not be installed or configured properly.

You say your machine is running Windows 2000? Can you run the IIS Manager
applet? Can you see your website in IIS Manager?
