View Full Version : .asp file opens with Frontpage

09-08-2006, 09:08 PM
My .asp files open with frontpage though I would prefer them to open on my pws - Im one of those last people who still use pws from Windows 98. I know this is a basic question unfortunately I cant go any further. Please help me.

If you double click on any ASP page to open it like the static HTML page It will open using some editor. In your case the editor is FrontPage.

If you want to view the ASP page why can't you open the browser and give the address like the following:

In the above mentioned format if your ASP page is inside another directory then you must provide that directory name also.

I think the error is due to FrontPage Server Extensions. Try disabling them and deleting any _vti* folders from your webroot and run the ASP page again.

You can use Visual InterDev which is a part of Visual Studio 6.0 for the ASP editing purpose.

Thanks codeexploiter thats a big help - I deleted _vti yesterday as well as FrontPage Server Extensions but they came back again. Will try to use Visual InterDev
