I am trying to get a website running with iis in windows 7 with Dreamweaver cs3.
I am using an access database.

(It was working correctly in XP and IIS but IIS in win7 is a lot different!)

I found this helpful page but it did not solve the problem
http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/43132/How-to-Setup-IIS-6-0-on-Windows-7-to-Allow-Classic

The error message I am getting is not informative to say the least,
"An error occurred on the server when processing the URL. Please contact the system administrator.
If you are the system administrator please click here to find out more about this error."

I have created a  new application pool and applied it in IIS via to the site under
Content View - Advanced settings,
The local site has started to show the database content but if I go to
Features view Basic Settings under Pass-Through and test settings I get an error Invalid application path.
Can anyone say what may be causing this please?

I am beginging to  wonder if it is possible to create a .asp website in Dreamweaver CS3 in Windows 7 using iis6?

Many thanks
john
