    Exclamation Need help with classic ASP


    I'm new to asp, and I need help to learn it, but before that I need help getting an IDE for it, and learning how to run it. Can anyone help me?

    I have visual studio, and windows 7, I enabled IIS, but when I do preview in web browser for some basic asp code I get some error message.

    What's your question? Obviously, you have to fix any configuration or programming errors before your code will run. Also as a guess, you probably are trying to use asp.NET, this forum is mostly for classic asp.

    I was reading up on these sites

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc753918%28WS.10%29.aspx

    http://www.codeproject.com/KB/aspnet/ASP_and_Windows7.aspx

    and then I figured it out and now it works. Now I need help learning asp classic. Do you know any really easy sites to learn the concepts from? That Microsoft site you gave before was complex...

    Why? Classic ASP is dead and gone. You'd be better off learning ASP.NET or something more open source like PHP.
    The only people "learning" Classic ASP are those having to support some legacy software or something. But for new development? No way Jose.

    The microsoft link I posted is a good place to start, MS does a thorough job of docmenting asp classic.

    Some other sites that may or may not still exist

    http://www.4guysfromrolla.com
    http://www.asp101.com
    http://www.15seconds.com

    These url's are from memory, there used to be 10 or 20 good asp related sites. I haven't visited any in years though. Devshed has a sister site http://www.aspfrree.com
