Look in IIS config for the directory the asppage is in. Then look if you enabled the execute option for this directory.

Default executing script and stuff like that is not allowed. But for asp pages you need to allow the scripts to be executed.
It could also be a problem of the ASP script itself. Like using object-references that no longer exist.
