Classic ASP page invokes SAVE-AS dialog instead of displaying

All,

My IIS 7.5 is screwed up because everything was working fine. Then I messed with something and now my Classic ASP pages are now serving but invoking the SAVE-AS dialog when I try to display them.  WHERE DID I GO WRONG????

I have a client that need CLASSIC ASP, which I love by the way, and I need my IIS 7.5 to work again without having to deinstall Windows Programs and defaults.

Any thoughts?

My MIME Type is set, my ISAPI Handlers are set, my default page is set, I just don't know what happened. I restart my computer and still nuttin'.

Please help, thanks.

Here's the Microsoft pages: http://www.iis.net/learn/application-frameworks/running-classic-asp-applications-on-iis-7-and-iis-8   You can try to re-install Classic ASP.

That doesn't help me... but thank you.

I need to figure out why IIS 7.5 will NOT serve up Classic ASP pages. Someone out there must have a solution?

I've tried dumping IIS and reinstalling it but to no avail.  IIS 7.5 will NOT even display the fail trace logs in XML format...

I have tried everything I can think of and research on the web.

I've made the required Handler... the APP POOL, Anonymous user for IUSR, setting permissions, everything and yet I get this:

Module      IsapiModule
Notification      ExecuteRequestHandler
Handler      ASPClassic
Error Code      0x800700aa
Requested URL      http://localhost:80/index.asp
Physical Path      C:\inetpub\wwwroot\index.asp
Logon Method      Anonymous
Logon User      Anonymous

The index.html file and .ASPX file works, but not .ASP.

Anyone, with ANYTHING please help.

Regards,

If you re-installed IIS, then you also need to re-install Classic ASP because it is Not installed by default in IIS7.  It is a separate action which is why I posted that link.

What Kind of Coding Program is Right for You?

There are many ways to learn to code these days. From coding bootcamps like Flatiron School to online courses to totally free beginner resources. The best way to learn to code depends on many factors, but the most important one is you. See what course is best for you.

Correct, I did that too... really!

There was a window's update I did that I backed out, with the help of an MS Technician and still, that doesn't help. Do you need screen shots of what my browser is showing?

Can we do a remote "teamviewer" session or something?

MS said I should do an in-place upgrade... but of course, the original media is on a hidden partition on the computer.

Recommendations?

No, I don't do 'teamviewer'.   "invoking the SAVE-AS dialog" is a classic symptom of the handler not running.  I've had that happen with PHP on IIS too.

I don't have IIS7.5 on a machine here so you might want to click on "Request Attention" above to get others to look at your question.  You might get some better answers.

Under the sites you shoud see your webiste, make sure you are pointing to the correct app pool.

I have like 40 sites I manage, so I need to set the APP pool for each on independently?

OK, here goes nothing...

Do you by chance have an include file in your ASP?

If you do, try putting a response.write in there somewhere to determine what it may be trying to download.

No and I use include files all the time but they are just other .asp files

Try using a simple hello world ASP file  with no includes see if you get the same thing

I do....

Here's the simple file

<%@LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT" CODEPAGE="65001"%>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>


<%
   dim strWrld
           strWrld = "Hello World"
%>
</head>
<body>
<TITLE>ASP Test Page</TITLE>

If you see "Hello World" below, then ASP pages in this Web application are serving properly.

     <STRONG><%=strWrld%></STRONG>
</body>
</HTML>
