ASP Classic web site on IIS7

I'm moving an old ASP Classic website from IIS5 windows 2000 to IIS7 windows 2008.

In the application pool, I have set it up for Classic mode instead of Integrated mode, but don't know that that is necessary.

My problems I'm having is this. The site is full of a bunch of include files which are setup as this:
<!-- #include file="header.asp" -->

Instead of INCLUDE VIRTUAL. If I change them all to INCLUDE VIRTUAL, with the virtual path instead of relative path, they work fine. Does anyone know why that would be an issue on IIS7 / Windows 2008?

Also, I have a function, that simply is:
 Function PCase(strInput)

And it errors that there is a syntax error on this line.

It worked on the old windows 2000 web server. Is there something I need to take into consideration when moving a classic website to windows 2008 and IIS7?
