Just moved a site from IIS6 to IIS7.5 (w2K8 server R2) and wnated to be able to debug a bunch of old Classic ASP sites.  I followed the instructions to disable the friendly messages, but these settings have no effect.
I still always get (Internal Server Error... ) friendly messages.
I've restarted the website, the webserver, to no avail.
I've cleared caches, histories, etc on both FF36 and IE8, but it looks like a bug in IIS7.5

Any ideas?

You may have to enable non-friendly error messages in your browser too.

I tried that on IE.  The error message(s) is(are) coming from the server.
This is a Classic ASP app, so no settings for DotNet have any effect.

I set the apppool to 32bit support as well - that solved the specific error, though I still would like to see ANY and ALL errors in the browser just like in Version 6 of IIS.

The following does not work for Classic ASP - not sure why this was a "solution" as this has no effect (been there, done that).
"Make sure you're in Features View (not Content View), then double-click the ASP icon. Expand "Compilation" and then "Debugging Properties".  Set the "Send Errors To Browser" to True.  Now when you browse the ASP page, you should get the underlying script error, instead of the default "An error occurred".  This will help troubleshooting efforts."

Any solutions?

I found the answer:  
You have to go to the Error Pages, then click on "Edit Feature Settings" and select one of the "Detailed errors" options.  Whew!
