ASP page not working or displaying error details

I have a site setup and an ASP page displays:

500 - Internal server error.
There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed.

when loaded, but it doesn't show the actual error.

I am using Win 2008 RC2 server with IIS7

The site is already setup to send errors to browser and the browser disabled the 'friendly errors', what else to check to get the actual error ?

Did you go through these steps http://www.iis.net/learn/application-frameworks/running-classic-asp-applications-on-iis-7-and-iis-8/classic-asp-script-error-messages-no-longer-shown-in-web-browser-by-default

If you log into the server and run your script/page from the server do you see the errors and it is only surfing from outside the server you don't see the detail?

If Padas information does not assist.
Give this a shot.

However, you have 2 down, so, this may not help, but worth a shot.

Thanks Ill try the above. I found the error tho, it was an ODBC connection issue. I had to login to the server and use the server's IE to see the error.

I would keep it that way.  Make up a special friendly error page for your server and when you need to debug, just log in to the server and run on a browser from there.

I strongly agree with Padas.
As you do not want your visitors to view these types of errors.
A lot of hosting providers, do not give access to this error page.
So, since you are running your own server, enjoy and do it right.
Keep the bad things out of line of sight of your visitors.

Good luck
