    You can use idc2asp.exe to convert it. You can download<BR>this from:<BR>http://www.activeserverpages.com/download/

    Thanks Ian.<BR><BR>I have downloaded the IDC2ASP software. But it says that it converts IDC/HTX files to ASP files running under IIS 3.0. The problem is that i have IIS 4.0. so am not sure whether it works with that too. Whenever i try to run the ASP file the browser gives me a "File Download" window which gives me an option to either open the .asp file from it&#039s current location (and opens it in FrontPage Editor), or save the file. So help me with this problem.<BR><BR>Thanks again for your help.<BR><BR>Bijal.

    yes this will work under IIS4.<BR>Are you opening the file form a web address<BR>like http://whatever/your.asp or are you opening<BR>it locally?

    I am opening it locally, like:<BR>file://w:ASPTestoiirdefault.asp<BR>where the directory &#039w&#039 is a shared directory with the server machine.<BR>it is at this time that i get the "File Download" window.<BR><BR>When i try to open it from a web address, like:<BR>http://oiir.iit.edu/ASPTest/oiir/default.asp<BR>the browser&#039s status bar says that "Reading from file..." but it never opens it. <BR><BR>Bijal.<BR><BR>

    Default RE: Converting

    ok, no problem. When you open a asp locally<BR>it will say "download" automatically. This is<BR>normal because the server has to process the asp before<BR>the html is written etc. The browser doesn&#039t know<BR>what to do with it.<BR><BR>as for when you access using http://etc,<BR>I would verify that all the code is correct by placing<BR>&#060;%option explicit&#037;&#062; before all code. This will mean<BR>you have to declare all you variables and may help<BR>you in debugging this problem. A small syntax error<BR>or undeclared variable might be the cause.<BR><BR>Also, verify that the server is set correctly to handle<BR>asp&#039s. By default IIS4 is setup to handle asp, but it might<BR>have been disabled or the directory might not have <BR>execute permissions.<BR><BR>
