Please run this file for me.
Copy and paste and save as:  Hello.asp
Save to your default IIS Location.  c:\InetPub\wwwroot
<%
response.write("Hello World I am here")
%>
And call it with this.
http://localhost/Hello.asp

Let me know if you can see the text written to the page.
If not, please let me know what error message you receive

To make sure that you are going to be reading the errors correctly.

It worked fine I am able to run http://localhost/Hello.asp. But I want to run aspx pages when i try to run hello.aspx the folowing error occurs

The XML page cannot be displayed
Cannot view XML input using XSL style sheet. Please correct the error and then click the Refresh button, or try again later.

Try each of these.
Give me the errors for each # that you try.

I will check on why you are getting this error in the meantime.

That should have worked.
I just ran a test and changed the file ext. from .asp to .aspx
And the page compiled.

What version of Windows are you using?
XP, 2003 ....exc.

How did the test run from the samples on that page?

I am using XP as well.
So, if these are working for me, without any tweaks, they should be working for you as well.
If they are not working, then the best advice I can give is to
Uninstall IIS
Reboot
Reinstall IIS
(This i have done a lot of if something is not work properly, in 9/10 times this works)
(Takes about 30 minutes total, If works, then it is better then hours (or) days trying to figure out nothing)

Good Luck

I have uninstalled IIS , rebooted system and installed IIS again several times, it does not actually remove some system files. and everytime its the same...well dont know..I think I have to uninstall OS then redo everything. But that does not look a very good idea to me. Any other solutions??
