ASP is not working

I can not get anyhting to do with ASP to work on localhost. No ammount of
reinstall has helped. System in XP Pro, Visual Studio installed without
error, IIS installed. Anything other than generic HTML simply returns a HTTP
500 - Internal server error. I have one page with 5 frames, 4 contain ASP, 1
plain HTML; I see the error 4 times and the HTML correctly. This driving me
nuts, any ideas would be MOST welcome.

I'm assuming you are referring to classis ASP and not ASP.NET?

check your local loop back to see if IIS is correctly configured. so from a
browser you do http://localhost/localstart.asp that should bring up a web
page. let us know if this works before going on.

The problem is consistent for both classic and .NET; and the
localhost/localstart still gives the same error.
Cheers, George.

That's a good sign. Next, you need to find explicit error information.Tools,
Internet Options, Advanced tab. Turn off "show friendly URL's". Then run the
application again. That will display the actual error experience by IIS.

Alvin,
Show friendly URL's was already cleared, but I also cleared the Show
friendly HTTP error messages; this then produced a message of "Server
Application Error
The server has encountered an error while loading an application during the
processing of your request. Please refer to the event log for more detail
information. Please contact the server administrator for assistance."
Searching through the event log I find "The server failed to load
application '/LM/W3SVC/1/ROOT'. The error was 'Class not registered'." is
generated each time I try to load a classic ASP page, I have no idea what
class may be the problem.
While "The server failed to load application '/LM/W3SVC'. The error was
'The specified metadata was not found.'." is produced once for each frame in
the ASP.NET application.

Ok, post these results to the iis newsgroup. I believe you can find more
help over there. Be sure to post back here if you figure it out.

If they can't figure it out over there, I'll try to help you out some more,
but this definitely seems to be an installation gone bad.
