    Exclamation Tutorial not running


    Hello Memnoch

    I followed the steps in the readme file, when i ran the website i got this error:

    ----
    Error Type:
    Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers (0x80004005)
    [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified
    /core/modules/common.asp, line 69
    ----

    I checked the ODBC in administrative tools, under the SYSTEM DSN tab, i noticed there are no

    System Data Sources mentioned, i clicked on ADD, then chosed Microsoft Access Database

    (*.mdb) and said OK, then i was provided with a window where i should enter the Data Source

    Name and Description with other buttons below (Select, Create, Repair, Compact) I stopped

    there i didn't know what to write.

    What should i fill the text boxes with?

    Thanks
    D.

    P.S:
    Could this have something to do with my problem mentioned in this thread: (http://forums.aspfree.com/t30294/s.html) ??? Because the ODBC was tampered with on both machines!

    make sure you have the latest MDAC installed.
    You can download the latest from Microsofts website.

    in youe readme.txt it says "3) In IIS create a virtual directory named 'core' (without the single quotes)
    and link it to your C:\core directory."

    I see what you mean now.

    Question Please help - not able to get tutorial working


    Hi!

    I was trying to go through the tutorial in an attempt to discern my problem with
    ASP. I am running IIS 5.0 on windows 2000 pro. I have created a webpage and
    the HTML works fine. However, when I tried my guestbook and rsvp ASP files
    I ran into problems. They are simple files, writing to a text file which is in turn
    read (#include) by another to present comments to the world. However, the
    page hangs - no error, just looks like it is downloading forever - when I hit submit.
    After this occurs, any attempt to use an ASP page results in"
    "HTTP Error 500-12 Application Restarting
    Internet Information Services"

    I downloaded the tutorial and as far I understand followed all the readme
    instructions. I was hoping this would provide me with some insight (this is my first
    use of IIS and ASP, although I have programmed a number of languages before).
    Refreshing (which is what M$ says should solve this) does not change anything.

    Any suggestions? I can't say I am certain what is meant by
    "the connectionstring in the global.asa file" referred to in an earlier post.

    Thanks,
    Derek
