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.

Thanks Carl,

When I open up Visual studio 2010 express, and start a new website I'm given only asp.net options not asp classic. Please see screenshot attached.

What can I do?

Thanks

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.  screenshot1

Actually, after a bit more research, you won't be able to with the Express edition. You need to be able to attach the debugger to the IIS worker process in order to be able to debug ASP. Unfortunately "Attach to Process" isn't an option with Express edition.

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.

You can still write classic ASP apps you just won't be able to set breakpoints or step through your code with the Express edition of Visual Studio. You can still debug the old fashioned way which basically involves peppering your code with debug Response.Write messages.

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

@Badotz: Do you mean Microsoft Visual Web Developer 2010 Express? I mentioned above, 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.

See screenshot attached. The 'Start Debugging' is greyed out...

I use the 2005 version, but I'm sure that the 2010 version would work as well.
