ASP Page not found -Dreamweaver

Hi Folks,

   I am using Dreamwear MX 2004 - I know , it's old..  I created an asp page, have IIS running and the web site defined etc. When I try to preview the page in Dreamweaver using IE, it tells me page not found and shows this URL address http://localhost/TMPt7xgsk7nr.asp.
I do not have a server and have IIS installed on my laptop that uses Windows XP Pro. In other words, my developing and testing are both done on the same computer.
What am I doing wrong?

This is the coding:

<title>Test Page</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<table width="75%" border="1">
<% Dim I
    I = 0
   response.write I
 While I < 3 %>
  <% I = I + 1
   Response.Write I
   End While %>

Save your pages to your inetpub/wwwroot/my_site
Folder, then in your address bar.

Now, it is best to set your IP Address to a static one for your network card.

IIS for XP is just as good as a server running IIS, the only difference is that you can only run 1 site, BUT as many virtual sites as you wish.
