Is it possible to have pages with the classic asp extension inside of an asp.net 2.0 website?  I would like a portion of a website I'm developing have the .asp extension.  So for example a folder with pages in .asp AND the rest of the site in .aspx pages.  I'm using visual studio 2005 and am having trouble getting the website to read the .asp pages.  I'm get the error listed below and I'm not sure how to tell visual studio it's ok to use .asp pages.  If I'm not mistaken Visual Studio creates its own localhost for websites, so I'm not sure If I should make the appropriate changes in IIS or Visual Studio.  

Server Error in 'applicationname' Application: This type of page is not served.  The type of page you have requested is not served because it has been explicitly forbidden.  The extension '.asp' may be incorrect.  Please review the URL below and make sure that it is spelled correctly.

Yes, you can have both ASP and ASPX pages in the same directory - they will not be aware of or interfere with each other.

The built in webserver in VS2005 is designed for use with ASP.Net and as such will not run classic ASP pages.  You will need to deploy this to an IIS based web server to run ASP pages properly.

Is there any way to construct an application using VS 2005 so that you can run and view in browser  the ASP pages of the application as well as the ASP.Net pages like you could do in VS 2003?  Otherwise this inability will probably triple the time needed to make what would have been a minor upgrade to an exisiting production application relied on by DHS.
