ASP Development With FP98

I have FP98 and am working on setting up a database in it.  I have "The Complete Reference: FrontPage 98" and am working in chapter 14 regarding working with ASP pages.  I have set up the first page as it says but cannot get the "Hello World" header to display.  I don't believe I have the ASP extensions properly installed on my PWS.  Who can help on this one?

Hi slink.

I use ASP almost exclusively now.

Show me your ASP code first so that we can rule out any errors there.

Have you installed the latest version of PWS from the MS site??  You need it to run ASP, not the one that came with your FP98.

Well that could be where the problem is -- I am using what was already there.  I will give that a shot and check back in.

Also, remember that you cannot "preview in a browser".  You will need to view your page at http://127.0.0.1/webname/pagename.asp

You probably already knew that, but just in case  ;-)

Okay, maybe that is where the problem is.  I was trying to preview in browser.  I guess that is the first place to start.  Thanks.

Np.  Let me know how it works.

I am running the MS PWS.  How do I tell which version?
I went to the web page as suggested and got the download or run page as the book suggested if ASP is not installed.  It would have been quite easier if the book said that you could not preview in browser.  It probably says that in the previous chapter, but I didn't think I needed that one.
How do I install ASP on this PWS?

You can't.

You need to download from the NT option pack (link above).  That will install the newer version of the PWS.  (Don't worry if you are not running NT...the Option pack installs PWS on Win9x machines too.)

That is a bit frustrating.  The book says to preview in browser.  Oh well, it is the book's fault on that one but my fault for not reading in enough detail on installing ASP extensions.  It works fine now.  I am sure I will be back with more questions.  Thanks.
