ASP page showing up blank, no errors

I just setup a website in a new computer, it has the same ASP files and DB backend as the one I have online.

When I bring up the login.asp page the browser (Any browser) shows a blank page, it loads with no errors being displayed, it simply does not display anything.

On IIS I have it set to return errors to the browser, but nothing ... the same ASP files and DB work fine in my laptop.

What should I check ?

try un-installing web matrix and see if the asp pages show then. i've read online that sometimes web matrix can cause a conflict with classic asp pages

make sure you have the right page.  

right-click and "view source" to see what's behind the page.

It is the correct page and ASP is enabled

As a matter of fact, It IS the correct page but the source code shows:


<!--#BeginBlock-->



<!--#BeginBlock-->

<!--#BeginBlock-->



<!--#BeginBlock-->


It doesn't display any of the code between those tags. before or after.

What should be around those blocks?  Is there any hard-coded HTML or is it all generated?  I notice there aren't any tags at all  - even basic ones like <html>...

That's right, NONE of the code is not being displayed on the browser. If I open the same page in Dreamweaver it shows the code just fine.

What if you - as [amucinobluedot] alluded to - made it an ASPX page instead of an ASP page.

If I change the termination to .aspx I get this error

If you just create a page that says

<%=hello world %>

Does that work?

AleksAuthor Commented:
This works:

<%@LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT" CODEPAGE="1252"%>

<!--#BeginBlock-->

<html>
<head>
<title>Redirect</title>
</head>

<!--#BeginBlock-->

<body>
Hello


</body>
</html>

<!--#BeginBlock-->

---

Shows the asp it reads "Hello"

There must be some setting on IIS that I am missing preventing the browserto display the ASP

So the whole page is generated programmatically?  There's no HTML on the page you should be able to see absent the ASP code behind running?  What version of IIS is this?

I am running win 8.  Seems like any ASP page is not being displayed properly.  PHP shows just fine, HTML shows fine too.

Can you show where you have asp enabled? Not installed but enabled

AleksAuthor Commented:
I checked with another ASP (classic) page and also displays none of the code when I view the source. Its like IIS is not working at all for ASP pages.  I will try to reinstall it see if that helps.

do you have web matrix installed?

Big MontyConnect With a Mentor Senior Web Developer / CEO of ExchangeTree.org Commented:
also, make sure the file handlers exist:

Open Administrative Tools -> Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager and select the website

In Features View under the IIS section select Handler Mappings check the existing mappings list that appears for a handler that points to *.asp if one doesn't exist select Add Script Map from the right hand navigation bar.
