Global.asax events not firing

Hi, I have an application developed in vs 2005. I have added Global.asax file but non of the events seem to fire. Then I created a brand new application with just a default page and added a global.asax file and events still dont fire. I also have vs 2008 installed and tried adding Global.asax and it seems to fire all the events. Any ideas why it wont be firing events in vs 2005 c#

Check your website that under which version it is running and the correct folder it is locating.

Not the problem with VS 2005 or 2008.

Try the following:
Remove global.asax from your project and add again and leave in on the root of the project.

Hi mmalik15,

   Try running the application from VS 2005 itself by pressing F5 and see whether it fires or not.

It does not  make difference thanks
Can you paste your global.asax content here? Include everything (you can delete the contents within a function if you so wish), but dont exclude anything else. Also tell us what specific event are you trying to hit in the Global.asax?
