ASP display problem - IIS 5.1 in WinXP Pro

    Hello guys...
    I've recently installed IIS 5.1 in Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3 to learn how to use ASP or to learn how to write ASP Script for web. However after writing my asp test file "Test.asp" and using Firefox to display it, the output isn't correct, as shown below in the picture.

    Why are you learning Classic ASP given it was replaced by ASP.Net over 9 years ago?

    I would go straight into learning .Net, download Visual Web Developer Express (its free) and this contains both your development interface and a testing server unless you have a very good reason for needing to learn an outdated clunky system

    AstarothSolutions, thanks mate for the info. I'll take your advise. But for the time being, I have to go classic ASP for some of my course requirements. One question though. Whatever we do i classic ASP can be done in ASP.Net?

    Classic ASP was almost always written in VBScript. As long as you create an asp.net project in VB.Net then in theory Classic ASP code can be copy and pasted in and would work the same. It however would not gain the efficiencies that was introduced by .Net and you would be much better off rewriting it "properly".
