I have just reinstalled my Win7 pro and am developing a site in ASP. I cannot for the life of me get detailed error messages out of the damn thing!

I have upped the message level in the 'default website' to be 'detailed messages' but all I get is the standard 500 message.

I had this problem before but cannot  remember the configuration change I made when i originally setup the previous install.

I have an ASP error and cannot track it down effectivly without detailed messages.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I can't see the wood for the trees any more.

Have a look here : http://blogs.iis.net/bills/archive/2007/05/21/tips-for-classic-asp-developers-on-iis7.aspx

To revert back to IIS6- behavior, simply run the following command:

%windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd set config -section:asp -scriptErrorSentToBrowser:true

Brilliant! Got my code snippet and error messages back.
I'll stash this inside a glass case marked - "use in the event of a system rebuild only".
