    Default Personal Web Server

    Hi, I&#039m new to ASP and I&#039ve downloaded the Personal Web Browser from Microsoft so that I can use ASP at home. I&#039m having problems when I open my ASP page in my browser nothing happens. All I see is a blank page. Its like the browser isn&#039t reconising the ASP. Can you please help.<BR><BR>Thanks<BR><BR>Kay.

    It it not the browser that recognises ASP, it is the personal web server. All the browser ever receives is HTML, it won&#039t ever know that the page was created using ASP. If you are requesting a page and it is showing a blank page then it seems to me that PWS is serving the page otherwise PWS or the browser would give an error.<BR><BR>Most likely cause of your problem is that you have made a mistake in the ASP page and haven&#039t instructed it to write anything to the screen.<BR><BR>Try viewing the source in the browser, sometimes the error messages get trapped in the source code.<BR><BR>Something else to try - <BR>strip all of the code out of your ASP page and write:<BR>&#060;%@ Language=VBScript %&#062;<BR>&#060;HTML&#062;<BR>&#060;BODY&#062;<BR >Test 1<BR>&#060;%Response.Write "Test 2" %&#062;<BR>&#060;/BODY&#062;<BR>&#060;/HTML&#062;<BR>You should see Test 1 on the screen produced in HTML, and Test 2 also on the screen being produced by the ASP

    What Ben said is very true. However I have run into a problem today that you might be experiencing too. I just found out that PWS doesn&#039t work under Windows ME. If you have ME than you got further than I did. If not, do the response.write test that Ben mentioned.<BR><BR>In addition, does anyone else know of a way to get asp scripts to run on Windows ME. Should I be looking at another web server?
