Visual Studio 2005 backwards compatible with classic ASP ?

P: n/a

We have classic ASP running (so I'm told) on IIS 6, and I found a vbc
executable on the system that says visual basic 7 when I run vbc -
help . If I have them install Visual Studio 2005, I am hoping it is
backward compatible with our current ASP codebase ?

Visual Studio has nothing to do with running or compiling ASP vbscript
(or otherwise) code. You can use VS2005 as a text editor because that is
all .asp files are: text.

This is not an ASP question.
It is a Visual Studio question and should be posted to a VS group.

Crikey. It seemed close enough to being an ASP question to me. The fella
just wanted to know if he can get much use from VS with asp. Or is this
group so rushed off it's feet that people can only ask code questions
nowadays?
