This type of page is not served using local VWD

Can VWD in local mode read .asp classic pages?

I'm getting the error:

This type of page is not served.
Description: 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.

Requested URL: /logout.asp

Hi I am guessing that you are using VS2005, and running your project on VS.Nets standalone webserver, switch it over to use IIS instead.

No, I am using Visual Web Developer 2005 locally, not VS2005. (I guess that's using the standalone webserver...)

So when I  move my project to a webserver, it should read the asp classic okay at that point?

Yes that is correct, it should work fine when deployed.

Currently it would be running off the VS2005 standalone webserver, that is part of VS2005, it is not using IIS settings, and that is why it is complaining
