I have a global.asa file in Win2K IIS 5.0, which counts the number of active users etc. if I put it under the wwwroot and call a script/... asp page it works fine, which it should. There if I'm running the same global.asa file in Nt 4.0 IIS. 4.0 it doesnt work, any Ideas?
In the script asp file I'm calling the active users
variable like so: <%=Application("ActiveUsers")%>d

See below for the global.asp code:
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="VBScript" RUNAT="Server">

Sub Application_OnStart
  Application("ActiveUsers") = 0
End Sub

Sub Session_OnStart
 Session.Timeout = 20
 Session("Start") = Now
 Application("ActiveUsers") = Application("ActiveUsers") + 1
 Application.UnLock
End Sub

Sub Session_OnEnd
 Application("ActiveUsers") = Application("ActiveUsers") - 1
 Application.UnLock
End Sub

</SCRIPT>

Firstly..

Sub Session_OnStart
Session.Timeout = 20
Session("Start") = Now
Application.Lock
Application("ActiveUsers") = Application("ActiveUsers") + 1
Application.UnLock
End Sub

Sub Session_OnEnd
Application.Lock
Application("ActiveUsers") = Application("ActiveUsers") - 1
Application.unlock

Also..On the website properties click on Configuration->App Options -> Enable Session State (Checked)

And finally make sure you've created a separate application in IIS.

It seems to me that all he has to do is create an application out of the directory this is running in.

Besides, what do you mean "won't run in NT 4"?
Do you get an error or what?

Right click on the folder in the IIS manager

Then click on Properties

On the first panel press "Create" next to the grayed out "Default Application"


Apply..

Sub Session_OnStart
 Session.Timeout = 20
 Session("Start") = Now
 Application("ActiveUsers") = Application("ActiveUsers") + 1
 Application.UnLock
 response.write "ActiveUsers :"&  Application("ActiveUsers")
 response.end
End Sub

try this and tell me what you have received in the Application varaible.  If it displays the correct data,  then step by step gothrough along with the flow of your site.  Then find out where is problem arise.

manihopever,
I get no output, it looks like its not calling the sub routine in the global.asa, thats what I don't understand.
I put the global.asa under the scripts/xyz directory and called a page from that directory, and no output, thats the weird part. In IIS.5.0(Win2K) not problems in IIS 4.0 NT.= junk.

I stand corrected..I was 99% sure you couldn't have reponse.write in the global.asa, but I've just tested using w2k and it works! (Maybe in NT4 it's different).


I still believe you haven't created a seperated application.

And finally you did call it global.asa NOT global.asp??

Ruperts, I created the application and then global.asa worked fine. Weired in Win2k, there is not need. Thanks guys for all of your help and input.
