I am revising classic ASP pages and have installed IIS 7. I am using Windows 10 and developing locally i.e. localhost. It is bind to port 80 and there are no conflicts with other software that I am aware of. I created a new website, testsite, made sure ASP was included. I created the virtual directory and Stop/started my web site. When I clicked on the "test connection" - it states "Authorization can not verify access to path c:\Inetpub\testsite"

When I click on the website, I can see my folder but not my pages.
When is use the url - http://localhost/testsite/test.asp - to test my page - it gives a 404 error.
I have also tried http://localhost:80/testsite/test.asp  - same results.
What is wrong and how do I fix it???
