Your server is bypassing the ISAPI ( execution for either all pages or the folders you are using.

Check that you have no ISAPI filters (which block ISAPI extensions), and that execute permissions are set for scripts. On my server script permissions are under the "Home Directory" tab. The "Configuration" button on that tab shows what ISAPI modules are run for each file type. Make sure your extension is listed with the proper executable. You may have a different version of IIS, but the concepts should be similar.

I recently installed ArcGIS Server (AGS) on my personal workstation to use as a testing and development box.  However, I encountered a problem the very first time I tried to start ArcGIS Server Manager and haven't been able to get past it.  Basically, it just gave me an error message, which I won't recount here.  I contacted ESRI support and went through some testing with them.  At the end of that the analyst suspected it was an IIS (Internet Information Server) problem and sent me a simple test file to use as a test web page.  He gave me instructions to install it in a location unrelated to ArcGIS Server.  When I installed it and browsed to in in a web browser, it show the code instead of performing the action and displaying the page that the code defines.

The ESRI analyst concluded that this must be an IIS problem, configuration or something.  That's odd since I only just installed IIS in the process of installing AGS.  I certainly haven't made any customizations to the IIS configuration that I'm aware of.

I asked our webmaster about this and she hadn't encountered this problem and didn't have any suggestions.

Have any of you encountered this problem and know the answer?
If not, do you know any good IIS forums or tech sites that I could submit this query to?
