    Default IIS and ASP

    My apologies if this is not an appropriate forum for this question/topic. (VB6 sp3, NT4 sp5, IIS4)<BR><BR>I&#039m a VB veteran, and have just started exploring IIS applications. I have created working code, but am confused about where "in the scheme of things" ASP and/or IIS applications belong. They seem to be a hybrid of VB, HTML and ASP. The completed compiled project includes a DLL (presumably containing the actual code), an ASP page which (?)creates an instance of my &#039program&#039(?), and two other files (.lib & .exp) - purpose unknown.<BR><BR>I can&#039t get "#include" to work, nor can I embed the "&#060;% ... &#037;&#062;" sequences in the HTML output to mimic all the examples in whatever resources I can find to help me get started. It seems as if anything in my VB code _NOT_ addressed to &#039 Response.Write "..." &#039 is equivalent to what is found in the &#039 &#060;% ... &#037;&#062; &#039 sequence. Where might I find _useful_ information about ASP & IIS other than the smattering of stuff on MSDN? Are ASP related sites/resources what I need to be looking at?<BR><BR>Thanks for any help,<BR>Mark<BR>elliotm@wes.army.mil

    Default RE: IIS and ASP

    Hi,<BR><BR>(1) Here is the list of sites I find very, very, very usefully:<BR>http://4guysfromrolla.com/webtech/index_asp.shtml<BR>http://www.15seconds.com/<BR>http://www.asptoday.com/<BR>http://www.activeserverpages.com/<BR><BR>(2) Presumebly you have NT Option Pack (or something) installed. On Start Menu open something like:<BR><BR>Windows NT 4.0 Option Pack >>> Microsoft Internet Information Server >>> Internet Service Manager (HTML)<BR><BR>It will open IIS page on your browser (guess IE4.01 sp1 or higher). Click on small book on the top right corrner. New IE Window will appear with related documetation. Under Internet Information Server you have a subgroup called (I think) Scripts&#039 Reference. There you have all you need to know about Scripts (VBScript, JavaScript etc.). Also, you can find there more info about specific objects, more info about VB things which are not supported in VBscript etc.<BR><BR>(3) If you are good in VB and ADO, I assume you will do just fine in VBscript. There are differences, but in many things you follow the some logic. Not to mention the sintax!<BR><BR>(4) Don&#039t know what were you compiling in ASP. Are you doing some components, ActiceX?<BR>When you say #include doesn&#039t work, do you refer to somethig like this:<BR><BR>&#060;!--#include virtual = "header.asp" --><BR><BR>That should work!<BR>If you have any question (even the most simple one, like what is ASP or so), don&#039t hesitate to e-mail me. If you wish I can send you some ASP pages examples. My e-mail: stevang@mail.com<BR><BR>P.S. I used to work with VBA and MS Access myself. I still do.
