The global.asa file does not load when entering the website we are developing. We are using IIS 4.0. The global.asa file is suposed to create an object.
My question is, are there any preferenses in IIS that has to be set to make globel.asa to work?

Global.asa iis unique to each application and should reside in the directory on the server that is the root of that application (with all the related html/asp files). You need to give Execute permission on this directory from within the Console. YOu should notice that the directory icon has a different icon representation in the console. The properties of the directory (right-click) should have an option to make the directory as an  "application" with a URL.

When using the global.asa to create objects, the object will be created when it's used (in some ASP), not when the global.asa is loaded.
