I have a classic ASP web site that I want to migrate into a new ASP.net 3.5 site.   I first created a new ASP.net web site in VS2008.  According to MS, I can run the two sites side by side.  I think MS called this a horizontal installation.    I started to copy the Classic ASP pages to the new site.   and tried opening the ASP home page. 

When I try to open the home page, I get the error - required Object:Server.  It appears to be failing on the line of VBScript code:

  Set  cnn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")

Two questions.

1)  How can I resolve this error?

2)  Do know of any link that explains how to migrate a Classic ASP site to an ASP.NEt 3.5 web site keeping the original ASP code?

Thanks for your help.

Migrating ASP to ASPX.... where to set 301 redirects


Hello, I'm updating around 15 pages from .asp to .aspx (.net 2.0)

My question is, do I have to put a header redirect 301 (permanent redirect) on each old file, or can I put it in global.asax file with a case checking for any of the 15 files?

I some tries to go to old.asp will it execute global.asax anyway?

Split URL/Path in Classic AND .net 2.0


I need to be able to get the different parts of the URI (and convert from/to relative page paths) in BOTH classic ASP and .Net 2.0 (VB).

For example, if I have "http://sitename.company.com/index.aspx?sec=fred&pag=dis&mode=1" OR "/index.aspx?sec=fred&pag=dis&mode=1"

IS there a function where I can pass in either string (assuming I'm on sitename.company.com) and get back an array with:

(0): sitename.company.com
(1): index.aspx
(2): sec=fred&pag=dis&mode=1

(Or, alternately, three different functions that would return the three parts?)

Changing classic asp.net Menu to CssAdapterMenu


Hello Friends,

                     I have been using asp.net menu control that is programmatically binded at runtime and has n child node levels. Now i want to use CssAdapterMenu instead because the menu control contains more than 1000 menuItems(in the near future it can also be more 2000 menuItems) and has very slow response in IE 6 or IE 7.

                    Now my question is how should i change the classic asp.net menu to CssAdapterMenu. What should be the steps? Any samples example of n child node levels would be helpful

As you move forward with your use of ADO. NET, you'll need to know how to approach situations that you previously learned to handle in ADO and now have to tackle with ADO. NET. Just as n-tiered solutions developed using Visual Basic®, C++, and ASP often rely on ADO for their data access needs, Windows® Forms, Web Forms, and Web services rely on ADO.
