I had a bit a of trouble today getting some classic ASP pages to load in IIS 7. Here is what I had to do:

  1. 1. Install ASP Feature for IIS if it is not installed.
    Server Manager -> Roles -> "Role Services" section : Check ASP under Application Development.
  2. 2. Check your application host config file for the line:
    <add name="ASPClassic" path="*.asp" verb="GET,HEAD,POST" modules="IsapiModule" scriptprocessor="C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\asp.dll" resourcetype="File" precondition="bitness64" />
    You need to remove: preCondition="bitness64"
  3. 3. Change your handler mapping for class ASPClassic.
    Instead of "C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\asp.dll" you should be loading "C:\Windows\SysWOW64\inetsrv\asp.dll"
  4. 4. Recycle App Pool and you should be good to go.
