Request object error 'ASP 0104 : 80004005'

P: 23
Windows 2008 / IIS 7
Running ASP CMS website using MSSQL.

I am getting the following error when attempting to save a large entry:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Request object error 'ASP 0104 : 80004005' 
  3. Operation not Allowed 
  5. /administration/saveSubCat.asp, line 5 
I've attempted the various solutions out there, and gone through countless pages of google "fixes". Every fix that everyone says works for them, hasn't worked for me.

Here's what I've done:
Removed line 5 and referring code.
Edited metabase.xml
Edited web.config
Ran appcmd syntax to increase limits via command prompt.
I've tried every fix here.

Has anyone run into a similar issue? I don't think it's the code because saving smaller entries, works fine. I only receive this error when attempting to save entries with large amounts of content. The content is pure text with some links, no images.

Thanks in advance,

I've re-attempted the above solutions, restarted IIS and the server multiple times, still no luck.

Has anyone ever had this issue running ASP on newer server?

After shutting down IIS then running the appcmd as recommended for windows 2008, i was able to get the upload size adjusted and the entry saves properly now.
