Active Server - Handling The Invalid Default Script Language Error In ASP


There may be occasions, particularly when you deploy code onto one machine from another, where you encounter the following error: Invalid Default Script Language )or a slight variation on this wording). Why does this occur? First off, double-check your page directive for typos such as "VBScrip" or JScirpt". Of course, if the code was running on one machine successfully, then there's a different problem: The scripting language you've chosen may not be available on the target machine. To check, launch the Internet Services Manager, right-click on the Web site or virtual directory that's malfunctioning, and choose Properties. Then, on the Home Directory tab, click the Configuration button. Click on the App Options tab and examine the Default ASP Language text box. Ensure that a valid entry exists here.
