Hi all,
     My old application is in classic ASP.
     I am creating new modules in ASP.NET and integrating them with the older version.

     My problem is that I use session variables in both versions.
     But now that Im copying over my global.asax, I get the following error :
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Server Error in '/' Application.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

This runs absolutely fine on my local machine.
The only reason I can think of for this error is because of the global.asa and global.asax clash ?
Am i right ?? How do I solve this ???
Could it be a path issue ? Does the created dll carry the localhost path somewhere in it ?

the .net version and older version can't share session information. you use a commonly available data storage location... ie: database, querystring, cookies, etc.

here's an msdn article on the subject:
