IIS Version 5.0 on Windows 2000 will not run ASP pages

P: n/a
I have a new ASP project that I need to desperately test on my Windows 2000
machine before posing to my Hosting Company. I am having problems getting
the ASP pages to run from LocalHost. I will attempt to give as much
information of what I have done to try to correct this without success.

First my setup. Windows 2000 Professional with Service Pack 2 installed.
IIS is installed. I have turned off the firewall just in case that was a
problem as the laptop is operating as a stand alone and not on a network at
this time. I also have VB6 with Service Pack 6 installed. I will explain
later why that my be pertinent.

The error that I am getting is:
The Page Cannot Be Displayed. with a HTTP 500 error. This occurs every time
I try to access a ASP page. HTML works fine from LocalHost.

IIS Setup Information:
Server Extension set to VBScript
Applications Settings ---> Execute Permissions: Scripts and Executables.
..ASP Extensions set to GET, HEAD, POST, TRACE – Script Engine Checked.
wwwroot ---> Internet Guest and Launch IIS Process have Full Control.

I am getting the following error in the Event Viewer:
Source: W3SVC
Description: The server failed to load application ‘/LM/W3SVC/1/ROOT’. The
error was ‘General access denied error

I read on the web that VB6 Service Pack 6 will break IIS and that it is
caused by permissions on a DLL File. I made the suggested correction and it
did not resolve the problem. I have un-installed and re-installed IIS.

On IE 5.5 I have set the Internet Options under LAN Settings to Bypass proxy
server for local addresses.

My test page is Microsoft Default http://localhost/localhost.asp

Keep in mind that HTML pages are working so I know that IIS is running.

Any suggestions would be great. I have been fighting this for 3 days and
can not seem to find any help from anyone. You would think that IIS would
work out of the box. It is also interesting that by default IIS sets up to
run JAVA instead of ASP or VBScripts.

Thank you
Mike

Regarding the 500 Errors:

Regarding the inability to run ASP:
ASP is turned off by default in IIS6. You have to go into the website
properties and turn it on:

Sorry Bob but this information did not resolve my problem. I am running
Version 5.0 not 6.0. I turned off "Show friendly HTTP error messages" in my
browser. So now I get the message "Server Application Error" The server has
encountered an error while loading an application during the processing of
your request. Please refer to the event log for more detail information.
Please contact the server administrator for assistance. The event log
details is the same as below. Any other ideas? Thank you Mike

What's the error number? And what do you mean by "The event log details is
the same as below"?

Try a Google search for the error number and description if searching the
aspfaq and iisfaq sites does not yield any results.

What account is your web site running under? As a test, add IUSR, IWAM and
ASPNET accounts to the admin group (briefly, as a test only)

That's the usual issue, as in:

http://support.microsoft.com/default...;en-us;Q842329

But, many permission errors could cause this. Try FileMon from
SysInternals to see what file is being denied access. Make sure your
IUSR/IWAM users are synched, using synciwam.vbs. See:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/297989/EN-US/

Also, post in the IIS group, since it's not an ASP error.
