    Unhappy Help asp pages won't work...


    I have set up iis on a windows xp professional laptop and cannot view asp pages. At first, I thought that this was a bad installation and removed it and re-installed again, but I am getting the same error. This is kind of frustating. I have done a search on the error message and came up empty. I was wondering if anyone can help. Thank you in advance for your help.

    Here is the Error message:
    Active Server Pages error 'ASP 0115'

    Unexpected error

    /iisHelp/common/500-100.asp

    A trappable error (C0000005) occurred in an external object. The script cannot continue running.

    This error comes up with any asp file I try to use.

    This all sounds like the scripting engine is somehow corrupted. Were you the local administrator user when you installed IIS?

    The scripting engine is updated with IE, I think. Is your windows update all up to date?

    You can download the scripting engine from the MS website somewhere.

    Smile


    Thank you very much Doug..

    Sorry for replying so late, I had to work a long shift at work and couldn't get wait to get home to try your solution.

    Once again, thank you for your help. Everything is working as it should without any errors.

    In case anyone is experiencing problems like this, here is the link of where I obtained the scripting engine from Microsoft. http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dnanchor/html/scriptinga.asp

    Smile I am having the same issue in one of my IIS servers.


    Hi fgc/doug,

    This makes me think that script engine is probably corrupted. Can you pls let
    me know which needs to be re-installed.

    Is it the scripten.exe? that needs to be installed?

    Thanks ...

    The ms scripting engine is installed with Internet Explorer. If your IE is up to date on your server, then you should have the current scripting engine. Otherwise, like I mentioned above, somewhere on the MS site there is (or was) a seperate download.
