Looks like you don't have a 'web.config' file.  IIS 7.5 is quite different than IIS 5.0.  For one thing, Classic ASP is Not enabled by default.  Here is the 'official' page for running Classic ASP on IIS 7: http://www.iis.net/learn/application-frameworks/running-classic-asp-applications-on-iis-7-and-iis-8/classic-asp-not-installed-by-default-on-iis   There is a link at the bottom of the page for more info.

Have you used the same web.config or moved the content into IIS7.5?
It looks like that IIS7.5 tries to interpret the web.config file from IIS5.

Create the new web space in IIS7.5 and copy the content wihtout the web.config file

THe other point what I see is an "access denied", so make sure there are no permission problems on the files. Permissions maybe a bit different is IIT7.5

It's possible to have features 'installed' but not enabled.  Please read thru the pages I linked and check your settings against them.  There is just a lot more to setting up and operating IIS7 than there was to IIS5.
