Hi,

Unfortunately I still have one website that I have to manage in classic asp. for this reason I am using the now old visual studio 2003.

I am working on an XP SP3 machine IIS 5.1

I can debug my asp files no problem, however the debugger ignore breakpoints within .inc files.

I do not have the freedom to avoid using .inc files because the website is only managed by me; I am not the developer who originally coded it.

I have noticed that .inc is not in IIS Mappings.

I think you're out of luck with directly debugging include files. The way include files work is IIS just takes the code from the include file and directly injects it into the asp page so you can't really debug the include file.

A couple of options that may help you with any issues you have is you could "debug" the old fashioned way by just putting response.write in the include file to write out any variables you want to know the value of.

Additionally if you do want to debug the code in the include file you could just copy the code from the file and paste it in your asp page in place of the include directive.

this is exactly what I am doing; I just thought that maybe I missed out any conifg options on IIS..  luckily for me this is the ONLY ASP webiste I have to manage :-)

well.. you are the lucky one that get's easy points.. :-)
