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's 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.
I am opening it locally, like:<BR>file://w:ASPTestoiirdefault.asp<BR>where the directory 'w' 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's status bar says that "Reading from file..." but it never opens it. <BR><BR>Bijal.<BR><BR>
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't 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><%option explicit%> 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's. 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>
