Hi Experts

I have Win 7 Pro / IIS7.5 and within IIS I just added a new site, but now when I run a Classic ASP page, I get

HTTP/1.1 New Application Failed

I had the same issue last week, when I added another website and I just had to change one setting.  Which setting and where - now that's the mystery.

Thank you

or you can find the configuration file, in most cases at c:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\applicationhost.config.
After making a backup, open it in a text editor and find the line

<section name="asp" overrideModeDefault="Deny" /$gt;
change the Deny to Allow.

That sounds familiar, but I somehow did it through the IIS UI?

i don't recall how it's done directly in IIS (although I'm almost positive it can be done), you're best best is just to find the file and edit it directly (making a backup before you do anything of course!)

For some reason, my file is at
C:\Windows\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-iis-sharedlibraries_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7601.22009_none_6fa8c430e4830ed0\applicationHost.config

and, even though I'm logged in as the administrator, it doesn't let me change it

copy it out of there, edit it, then copy it back in

I copied out, edited it, but cannot copy it back in. Even when I go under Security for that folder I cannot give permission.

By the way, there are 2 files in the following folders:

C:\Windows\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-iis-sharedlibraries_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7601.22009_none_6fa8c430e4830ed0

C:\Windows\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-iis-sharedlibraries_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7601.17514_none_6f0f7833cb71e18d

why is that, and I think I can only do it through the UI, but how?
