I am attempting to open some very basic ASP Files in Internet Explorer 8 on a 2008 Server. I have followed various deployment how to links, but when I type in the URL in explorer, I receive a HTTP Error 404.0 Error. This is what was typed in for the URL:  http://localhost:85/webfiles/testasp.asp

    Your problem could be one of two reasons.

    1, make sure that asp is installed.
    It is no longer installed by default.

    To install it,
     •Go to control panel
    •click program features
    •turn windows on and off
    •go to internet services
    •under world wide web services check the and others

    2, If it turns out that asp is already installed, then follow these steps to ensure it is enabled.

    1.Click Server Manager
    2.Add roles and features
    3.Click next and then Role-based
    4.Select your server
    5.In the tree choose Web Server(IIS) >> Web Server >> Application Development >> ASP
    6.Next and finish

    I bet that if you create a .html file in that folder and run it like

    it will display the contents of that file.
