Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a000b' vs HTTP 500 - Internal server error

I am accessing the same error-containing ASP page on an ISP server using w2k
IE6 but with different effect.

On the first computer I get several line of HTML outputed by ASP, shown
correctly by the browser, followed by a descriptive error message:

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a000b'
Division by zero

followed by the number of the error-making line

On the second machine my HTML is not displayed at all. Instead I am getting
that meaningless error page sayng that The page cannot be displayed, HTTP
500 - Internal server error.

How can I get the second computer be more informative about the errors?

it's an IE setting.
Uncheck the "Show Friendly Error Messages" option

Thanks.
But strange thing - that Show "Friendly Error Messages" is checked on both
computers. And one still shows the ASP errors

Another strange thing is that the other computer (before I unchecked that
box on it) treated different errors differently.
In case of Division by zero it displayed that non-informative
" The page cannot be displayed, HTTP 500 - Internal server error"

Yet on another page the error "subscript out of range" was shown with all
the necessary details

Go into the virtual directory properties on the machine showing the generic
error.
Select the "custom errors" tab.
Select error code 500.
Click "set to default"

I see, Mark, that from Internet Services Manager I can configure the format
of error messages issued by webserver on my computer.
Yet I am talking about receivig error messages from other website.
And my problem is that the same error on the same page on some website
returns different error messages on two different computers of mine.
Do setting on my Internet Services Manager affect what I am getting from
other web-servers?

The setting is on the web-server that is generating the error message. That
is why you are seeing a difference between two servers.

The "pretty" error message should also contain the actual error message,
script, and error location (check the entire page) but will not display the
HTML generated prior to the error.

I am seeing a difference between two client computers trying to access the
same page on the same server.

All these experts have failed to answer your question. The reason why
that is -> temporary files. If you run an INSTANCE of that webpage on
the computer and it works, then - assuming the temp page is still on
your pc - when it generates an error, the error will be descriptive (as
is the case on your first computer. Whereas your second computer either
never had or doesn't have anymore a previous "instance" of that page.
