    Web Server Test Area (XP Pro SP2)

    Cross-posted <!post=in this thread,465793>in this thread<!/post>. To avoide duplicate and diverging threads, further answers there please. See <!rule=14>Rule 14<!/rule>.

    Can anyone give me simple Guidelines for the steps required to set up a test web server at home.
    Or give me a location or reference as to how this should be configured?

    I want to be able to use HTML, ASP and ASP.NET

    I have VB6 and VB.Net installed
    I have just installed IIS

    I have put a simple app together ( 1 page) in the standard root folder
    C:InetPubwwwroot

    I guess I have messed up the configuration somewhere because

    If I use a page like index.htm then when I use http://localhost in my browser it works fine
    But if I point it at a similar page index.asp then I just get an error

    Server Application Error
    The server has encountered an error while loading an application during the processing of your request. Please refer to the event log for more detail information. Please contact the server administrator for assistance.

    The Event Log says
    The server failed to load application '/LM/W3SVC/1/Root'. The error was 'Class not registered '.

    Also if I click on the ASP NET tab in the IIS configuration window the whole thing crashes with an illegal operation message.

    I have no issues with the ASP and ASP NET coding
    I just cannot get the %^&^&* thing to work.

    I've done something stupid, but I don't know what
    so any help would be very very good.

    I've tried getting information from Google but nothing seems to assist me.

    Many Thanks (in advance)
    Andrew
