Need to skill up in ASP 3.0. possible on MS Visual Developer 2010 Express?

I need to skill up in ASP 3.0, but the only software I can find is MS Visual Developer 2010 express which I think only supports ASP.NET. Are there any patches I can install or make it work with ASP 3.0? ASP 3.0 only supports extensions with .asp not .aspx

Thanks!

Code files for ASP are simply text files, and you can debug them in 2010 still.

I manage to create an .asp file and save it in visual studio 2010, but I am unable to debug it. It's a very basic asp page with response.write("Hello World"); as the only asp content in it.

Please see attached screenshot.  User generated image

That's really disappointing!

There are so many organisations around the world that are still using ASP classic websites. How is a newbie supposed to get a hang of these types of websites without being able to practice asp classic on his own computer?

Thanks.

Use the free Microsoft Visual Web Developer. I debug classic ASP pages all the time.
