ASP and ASP.NET on IIS7 on Vista

For 90% of my web projects, I’m good with PHP configured under IIS7.  But there’s one that still needs “Classic ASP” support.  Since I’m on a new machine these days, I haven’t ever configured it to do development for this project.  Here are some tips to get that working on Vista:

  1. By default, turning on IIS in Vista doesn’t give you ASP or ASP.NET.  Go into Control Panel > Programs and Features (aka “Add/Remove Programs”)
  2. Turn Windows Features On or Off
  3. Under World Wide Web Services > Application Development Features check and enable ASP and ASP.NET 


  4. Next, for a development machine, it’s useful to turn on debug error messages.  Open IIS Services Manager (Right-click on your Computer and choose Manage)
  5. Click on your Server icon under the “Connections” pane
  6. Double-click on “ASP”
  7. Expand “Debugging Properties” and set “Send Errors to Browser” to True (only do this on your development machines)
