I've been doing all my ASP projects etc in my Uni whcih I can access from home but cannot FTP etc. Which mean I cannot edit files and play around with code.

Is it possible to run the asp on my home ASP so I can practise here rather than travel to uni each time!

Im running vista ultimate from home

I've just installed IIS 7 and have run the script to do the complete install.

When I run my HTML file that points to my asp file it just downloads the .asp file instead of running it.

I've all my files in the wwwroot folder

Any ideas as to what im doing wrong??

Warning: server configuration isn't quite my thing. But I believe you have to tell the server what to do with each type of file, so it's probably just a matter of setting your IIS to render ASP files rather than just download them.

Now, how to do that, I have no idea.

I bet its just a small thing im doing wrong but I've been at it all day and its driving me mental

When I run http://localhost/SSNName.html it works fine, just seems to not run the asp file

I get the following error: An error occurred on the server when processing the URL. Please contact the system administrator

Are you sure that you can't log in remotely to your university machines? Almost all sensible departments will allow remote logins. If not, there might well be a student run computing group that will have a machine you can log in to remotely...

No they wont allow external log ins I checked!! (Nightmare)

been working on this all day

I've also enabled error reporting and got the 80004005 error

Went to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/926939 and followed Step 1 - 4 (Still no luck)

Now the error seems to refer to this line in my asp code:

adoCon.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; Data Source=" & Server.MapPath("comp2000.mdb")

The database reference seems to be this issue but the db is in the same folder as the html & asp

The command below was not in the MS KB article but many people around this forum have suggested it:

%windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd set config -section:applicationPools /[name='DefaultAppPool'].processModel.loadUserProfile:false

Its done the job
