JSI Tip 1688. Outlook Web Access (OWA) displays login.asp instead of running it?

When accessing OWA with your Web browser, the login.asp text is displayed and not run. You can run non-OWA .ASP pages in the same folder.

The application mapping properties of .ASP in IIS have been replaced, probably by a third-party application.

Manually enter the the application mapping for .ASP. To modify a specific Web site:

1. Start / Programs / Windows NT 4.0 Option Pack / Microsoft Internet Information Server / Internet Service Manager.

2. Right click the Web sites Default Web Site folder and press Properties / Home Directory / Configuration.

3. Click Add on the App Mappings tab.

4. In the Add/Edit Application Extension Mapping dialog. set the Executable by Browseing to %SystemRoot%\System32\Inetsrv\Asp.dll. Type .asp in the Extension field and PUT, DELETE in the Method Exclusions field. Check the Script Engine box and press OK.

5. Repeat step 4 using the .asa extension instead of the .asp extension in the Extension field.

6. Click OK.

7. Right click the Default Web Site folder and press Stop.

8. Right click the Default Web Site folder and press Start.
