I just installed the express addition of visual web developer 2005 on xp home addition (no IIS server, I am using the development server that comes with the express addition of visual web developer.)
When I create a web site with old asp pages and try to run it I get the following error message: Can someone please tell me if I can configure the ASP.Net development server to process asp pages, and if I can
how to do it.
The type of page you have requested is not served because it has been explicitly forbidden. The extension '.asp' may be incorrect. Please review the URL below and make sure that it is spelled correctly.
Version Information: Microsoft .NET Framework Version:2.0.50727.42; ASP.NET

The .NET Framework does not compile "classic ASP" pages. ASP is a server technology that must be run on IIS. ASPX pages are based the .NET Framework and can be compiled either by IIS (if ASP.NET Framework is installed) or on the local machine in Visual
Web Developer. You can't use VWD to compile ASP because ASP is not based on the .NET Framework.
The best thing to do is create a new site and migrate over functionality from your old site page by page. It will be more work than a copy-and-paste.

Thank you Dan that helps!
The site that I need to make changes to is quite complex and I cannot migrate it to .NET framework right now. It seems then that I need to have IIS--it comes with xp professional right? (I am currently running home addition)
