nternet Explorer cannot download default.aspx from localhost.

Goood evening everyone,

 Im getting this message when I visit a page that throws an error. I step through the code and i see the error and what normally should happen is the standard yellow error messgae. No such luck. In FireFox i get a bunch of weird characters on the page as well.

Any ideas what is causing this?

Did you make any changes to ASP?  The reason I ask is for whatever reason the version of asp gets changed on the IIS site it tends to screw the pooch.  If you are devoloping in .net 2 make sure that is the one enabled on the site other wise you get phantom errors.

tmueller18,

Are you in charge of the page that throws the error?  Or are you just visiting it?  Sounds to me like the page owner doesn't have his site set properly. So if you are trying to visit it, perhaps wait a day or two till he figures out it's messed up, or try to contact him through a different page and see if he is aware of it.

Or you could give us the url and we could perhaps take a look at it.

In IIS make the Add Default.aspx page in Default page list

To Do this
         Open IIS
         Navigate to the virtual directory
          Goto Properties
          Select Document Tab
         In Default documents list Add "Default.aspx"
and click OK

So we are pretty much shooting in the dark.
Have you tried run aspnet_regiis.exe?

Hey prairiedog,

I tried uninstalling the .net framework and reinstalling it with the same results. One thing that i havent tried is debugging a different app to see if that works. This will let me know if its site specific or for IIS as a whole.
