Web page returns "The page cannot be found" in IIS 5

57 New Member
I have a web page that I installed to IIS 6.0 from a web deployment project successfully.

I am trying to deploy the same application to laptops that are running IIS 5.0. I am getting an error "the page cannot be found". My virtual directory is setup correctly (at least in the same manner as per iis 6).

I dont see a tab for web service extentions. I cannot browse from IIS either, I get the same error, even if I browse to an htm file.

What have I not turned on.

i do get iisstart.asp to work if i browse to http://localhost/
i am required to run ie 6.0

i respelled my application name from something.1 to something1. the application now starts. Does IIS have a dislike for .'s?

Well here is another question, has anyone used the file-types-on-target-machine to assign .vs files?

I believe that you are right, IIS does not like . in virtual directory names. Here is an article that may help:

Hi, I have set up an asp.net website on another PC in order to test it. The site was fine on my PC, but on the new PC all the pages give the error "The Page Cannot Be Found". Some legacy pages (ASP, as opposed to ASP.Net) work fine. The old PC was running Windows 2000 Server, and the new PC I am testing on is running Windows Server 2003. Thanks in advance,

I have a .NET 1.1 web page with a DataGrid containing a TemplateColumn that contains a DropDownList.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
