They should render properly in your browsers as they are not client dependant you might want to turn on the net framework in programs and features/turn windows options on or off

Yes, you can with Notepad. Alternatively, download Notepad++ from

http://sourceforge.net/projects/notepad-plus/files/notepad%2B%2B%20releases%20binary/npp%205.6.3%20bin/npp.5.6.3.Installer.exe/download

which gives syntax highlighting

ASPX should pull up fine - that is more of browser issue than an O/S issue.  ASPX is just a webpage format built in ASP.NET.

If you are having issues viewing a ASPX page in Firefox, use the IE tab add-on (http://ietab.mozdev.org/).  Basically can convert individual sites to IE format while using Firefox.  IE should have not issue viewing ASPX pages.

This will open the file but it is not in a readable format.  The file is a monthly statement from BOA that opens fine in Windows XP.

What browser and version did you use on xp? Could you upload your aspx page (rename it to .txt first)?

I opened in chrome on xp machine.  Sorry, can't upload because it has banking info in it.  Have tried Chrome, Firefox and IE8 on windows 7 machine.  File should normally open from BOA site but is forcing me to download in Windows 7.

You could edit the aspx with notepad and get the banking info out.

Most of the text, including the banking info  looks like this in notepad:

OK, then your .aspx is not plain text - sorry, then I don't really know how to reproduce the problem.

Hi there;

If it contains no .NET codes, just rename it to html and you can view it but if it contains .NET code, you must run in it on a server. In fact, the pages you grab is the delivered result of a server request.

You need to have VS 2005 or 2008 for that. You have to start your VS first, and it starts your development server. Note that ASPX pages need a server to run.

To debug or such stuff, you can create virtual directory with application in your IIS.

In order to view it, you may choose a root, and of course this would be inetpub/wwwroot, and put it/them under. If you dont use inetpub/wwwroot, you must create a virtual directory where you want your test the aspx pages using Interent Information Services tool under Admin Tools.

Unlike php codes, you need VS to view it, debug it and IIS to run it.
php on the other hand needs also a web server but you can view the .php files whichever tool you want.

Best regards.
