ASP and personal web server

Posted on 1998-12-30

I am running a personal web server on a laptop with windows 98 and visual interdev.  Every time the asp script is called
from a html file or just from the Ie4 browser, visual Interdev launches and places the asp file in edit mode.

How can I run the asp file from the browser instead of having visual interdev edit the file.

Have you tried to unassociate the asp file from the interdev.  It appears that the asp file is associated with interdev.  Try opening up explorer and breaking the association with interdev.  See me tomorrow for details...

Disassociating the .asp file from interdev didn't do anything.
now when it runs it just doesn't open in edit mode.
nothing happens now.

Is the URL of the referred ASP a local file (file://...)? Then you should change the reference to something like http://localhost/myfile.asp. Relative paths are allowed of course.
Furthermore, make sure that the directory that contains this asp file has execute rights.

Does it happen in NsNavigator as well? I hope you have it installed to test...
When I used MSIE3 I had this same problem, sometimes... I just had to reboot and try again or switch to Navigator. I never discovered what was wrong, it seemed so random.

Have u installed the FP Server Extension on your Web Server. Do that and make sure that the directory containing the ASP files has execute permissions both on the Web Server and the NTFS.

I have the same problem with my computer at work, I kind of cheated around the problem by making a regular html page and putting a link to the asp on it. Doesn't really solve the problem, but it does allow you to view the asp page.

you should retrive your page through the location http://localhost/...
check the IP of your local host by open the file      c:/windows/host
in NotePad.
anyway, find out the URL of your page.
