Hi John, Another voice chiming in here ... not sure about win2k - but on Win98 you had to load PWS and then go back to the CD and load in ASP separately. It didn't automagically load with PWS (which _I_ think is kinda goofy - but hey). HTH, RonL. -----Original Message----- From: Pearson, John [mailto:JOHN.PEARSON at eia.doe.gov] I have just installed win2k on a clean hard disk, added and activated IIS as a server but its pretty clear that asp isnt running. I can access any html page via the server but no asp pages. Can anyone tell me where the secret handshake is? The asp.dll is there.
