Classic ASP application on W2003 server, using IIS6.0.

Posted on 2006-03-21
Last Modified: 2010-04-20
I have a Classic ASP web app that stores some information in the "Application object". We are moving to  2003 server. I have setup the application as it is on our other box ( using IIS 5.x ). When the code attempts to access some of the data that should be stored in the Application object I receive an error because the data that should be stored there appears to not be there.

I'm sure its a configuration issues but I am uncertain as to what I need to change.

    Check that classic ASP support is installed by going to the IIS section in Add/Remove Windows Components. Support for classic ASP is not installed by default on 2003.

    I found the problem. It was a case of the virtual directory was marked as an application ergo the application was essentially being reset when it went into that virtual directory. Once I removed that everything was fine.
