Hello
I am getting a new PC running and am having problems with opening localhost.
I have upgraded from 32 to 64 bit XP
I have iisstart.asp  iisstart.htm and localstart.asp located in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot

If I type in the url http://localhost/localstart.asp then I get
HTTP Error 404 - File or directory not found.
Internet Information Services (IIS)

If I type in localhost I get
Under Construction
The site you are trying to view does not currently have a default page. It may be in the process of being upgraded and configured. Please try this site again later. If you still experience the problem, try contacting the Web site administrator.

I cant think where I am going wrong.
Any ideas pleas?
Many thanks
John

Thanks when I type http://localhost/iisstart.htm I am getting Under Construction  which when I look at the file seems correct. I then modified the file slightly in the title  with XXX but when I open it again in localhost the file remains unchanged.

I notice in IIS under default Web Site Properties Configuration Tab executable paths are listed as C:\Windows\system32\inetsrv\asp.dll I wonder if the reference to 32 has anything to do with this as this is a 64 bit system?

Some good news, I uninstalled IIS 6 and reinstalled as administrator and some parts are working.

If I use http://localhost/ I get error 401.2 You are not authorised to view this page.

If I use http://localhost/ localstart.asp/  I get one page correct except it is for iis 5. (I copied this file from a previous iis5 installation).

I have decided to reinstall xp 32 bit as I found out that Dreamweaver cs3 may not be compatible with a 64 bit system.
pls see url for details

Just to confirm I reinstalled xp32bit.
I also found I could not use access2007 with cs3 and had to revert to access2003.

To update to windows 7 and cs5.5 would cost over £400. these prices seem excessive for upgrades
