My contemplations and diurnal novelties are publicized here

For debugging Classic ASP keep in mind two key terms:-

1. Classic ASP debugging only works with IIS. It does not work with the VS Development Web Server.
2. In Visual Studio you have to attach to the ASP worker process (w3wp.exe in IIS 6,7).

Here is how to make ASP debugging work:

1. Enable ASP debugging on the server.

2. Open classic ASP in VS Studio.
3. Set breakpoint.
4. View page in browser or run without debugging.
5. Debug | Attach to Process
6. Locate IIS ASP worker process (w3wp.exe on IIS6/7) which exposes x86 and Script and attach as Script.

  2. I have done all this several times and it still will not stop at breakpoints.

    • Have you attached it with the process (w3wp.exe). Also Kindly share your configuration. OS, VS Version, IIS version etc

    So nice to have this info. Thanks for posting! I thought I was done with classic asp 12 years ago…nope.

  4. Is there any way to setup of VS2008 so that you can debug both ASP and ASPX pages within the same session? I have a project with both types of pages.

  5. I know this web page presents quality depending articles or reviews and extra information, is there any other site which gives these stuff
    in quality?
