You must create an executable folder (the folder containing your asp files).Follow the same steps for any amount of folders that contain your asp file. Without this the asp will not be executed.You must also enable the folder containing the results page to run queries and Active Server Page code when the page is fetched. To do this, select the Folders View in the FrontPage Explorer, then click the folder that contains the asp files, and the same for the folder containing “results.asp” page. On the FrontPage Explorer’s Edit menu, choose Properties. In the folder’s Properties dialog box, select the Allow scripts to be run or Allow scripts or programs to be run option and click OK.

Hi,

This is because Read and execute access is not set for the directory containing the scriptor IDC file that is being requested by the Web page. Executing the script from the WWW server itself may not cause the error to appear since the user account used to log on to the server may have administrator rights.
 
To correct this problem:
 
1. Open the Internet Server Manager, and bring up the properties of your WWW service.
 
2. Choose the Directories tab, then double-click your scripts directory.
 
3. Under the access section make sure Read and Execute are selected.
 
4. Check the security permissions on the directory in File Manager to verify that at least read and execute permissions are set on the files and the directory.

Good luck!

Accessing the same page and attempting to submit from the web server locally creates the same error. Execute and write permissions are set for all users.

Hope further help is available

yes I am using fp98

The server extensions have come from the fp98 cd.

I have aworking copy of this set up running with iis4. All setup appears to be identical except that on the working copy I have a virtual www server where as on my duf version I have set up a virtual dir. Does either of these matter?

Thanks

It appears that my www server is not even executing the asp page which references the odbc. I have tested a simple asp page to confirm this and found no script is being executed, however no errors are returned either. I assume the standard iis3 installation does not include asp support and if so where can I find the asp components to install. Thanks
