I tried everuthing it just wont work. I have the following code:

<%@ import namespace="ErrLog" %>
<script language="C#" runat="server">
void Application_Error(Object sender, EventArgs e)
            {
                        Exception objError = Server.GetLastError();
                        ErrLog.ErrLogger.WriteLog(objError);
                        Server.ClearError();
            }
</script>

in my Global.asax file. It just wont get executed. It doesn't return an error, it just doesn't do anything. Everything works as if it wasn't there.

I read a post about having to restart the web site, i did that about 100 times, i tried using a codebehind page and the code above with the same results.

in your global.aspx type this
<%@ Application Codebehind="Global.asax.cs" Inherits="Namespace.Global" %>

Then in your code behind page use
using System;
using System.Collections;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.SessionState;
namespace YourNamespace
{
public class Global : System.Web.HttpApplication
{
private System.ComponentModel.IContainer components = null;
  public Global()
  {
    InitializeComponent();
  }
  private void InitializeComponent()
 {    
  this.components = new System.ComponentModel.Container();
  }
 // Your other events here
  protected void Application_Start(Object sender,  EventArgs e)
 {
 }
}}
If its still not working then check for typo errors

Is the directory where the asax is set as an application in IIS?

Start IIS Management Console, navigate to the directory, right click properties, Click Create.

This will make the directory an application and IIS will load the asax.
