I am running Server 2003 RC2 with IIS.  3 websites all using .asp.  ASP is enabled and I can view .htm .html etc. if i set it up that way. Default documents are correct but when loading any .asp website I get a http 400 the page cannot be found.  There are no errors in the event log.

Any suggestions?

A few other things I would check:

1)The physical directory with the web site has to have file level permissions (read, write, execute) granted to the IIS accounts on your local machine. (right click on the folder, security, local machine, look up the IIS and ASP accounts, give them these permissions)
2)Make sure the version of ASP you are running is set correctly (1.1 or 2.0)
3)After doing these steps and if still no success, remove the virtual directory and rebuild it, stop and start the IIS service (start->run->services.msc)

sevensnake77 -> Yes they were running as virtual directories.


Reinstall of IIS solved the solution.  Original IIS was a fresh install as well.  It is unknown as to what caused the problem but issue resolved never the less.
