ASP pages timeout in  IIS 7

IIS 7 on  Windows 2008.
As far as I know, ASP is enabled. It shows up in IIS manager under application development.
For example, if I request test.txt from the default application directory, I get the page.
If I request test.asp, which exists in the same directory, "Script timed out"
(test.asp contains no code, just some random text)
What is  the IIS 7 configuration I'm missing?

I would not  use random text
try the ATTACHED.

<%@ LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT" %>
<!--- You should get --->
<!--- current system date and time ---> 
 
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<TITLE>ASP Test Page</TITLE>
</HEAD>
 
<BODY>
Today's date and time is <%=Now()%>.
</BODY>
</HTML> 

Open in new window

I've tried pages like that, and simply renaming the test.txt page ".asp".
All the same result. Which is why I think it is some sort of ASP configuration issue.
Additionally, I set the ASP script time out  to 10 seconds,  for debugging purposes, but it still takes minutes to time out.

do you have full access to the server ?
usually is ASP is not enabled on servers the error is faster than a timeout. so it sounds like ASP is enabled .but not quite right.

Yes I have access.
I must correct my description, the box is running 2008 Web edition.
When I go to programs and features, it doesn't have ASP as an option.
I'll looking around to try to determine if  "web edition" for some
ridiculous reason does not support ASP.

Under server roles - Role services I can see that ASP is installed - ISAPI filters and extensions as well.
Looks like it's supposed to be available on the box and "should" be working

as another test, I requested an ASP ( simple as above) page from  2008 standard server IIS 7 without any trouble.

And for the topper, without any apparent changes, it now serves up the asp page.
No explanation..
