Debug Classic .ASP?

Hi there,
I have spent the last three days trying to get b&st&rd Visual
Interdev debugging again but to no avail. I also have VS 2003 and 2005
installed. Should I be able to use either of those to debug .ASP projects?
I did try but the breakpoints are ignored like they are in VI.

This might help

Look for:
Visual Studio Support for Classic ASP Intellisense and Debugging

It looks like VS2008 ONLY with SP1 ONLY (which is in beta right now).

But I'm no expert, just sharing what I saw.

Actually:

//quote
Previous versions of Visual Studio included support for intellisense and
debugging within classic ASP (.asp) pages.
//end quote

suggests that earlier than 2008 was possible.

But I have no idea. I haven't used asp in like ... 50 years it seems like.
(1999-2000 ??)

Visual InterDev 6 certainly permitted debugging of VBScript in classic ASP.

IIRC, it was even possible to debug client-side JavaScript so long as you
used IE with the Microsoft Script Debugger installed, and used the
JavaScript reserved word debugger; where you wanted the code to break...

Never had the slightest need to use classic ASP in Visual Studio.NET,
though, so couldn't comment on whether it can be debugged in the newer
IDE...

I managed to get debugging working in VS2005. If you open the web site as a
project in 2005, you then have to attach to the process rather than start
the project, and the debugger will step through the code.

Hi I am a .NET developer, but "have to" work with some classic ASP, which I don't know much about. What is the best way to work with it/debug it? I have VS 2003 and 2005 installed, I know VS 6 (with C++), but don't know if I can reinstall it. Other options I know about are Macromedia trial versions.
