Title: IIS displays code instead of page.
Hi Guys,
I've got it fixed.  Stacia at ESRI in SA monitors the OKGIS list and forwarded it to one of their gurus down there.  Turns out .NET wasn't registered with IIS...!?!  He gave me the command to use and that fixed it.  See below for the fix.
Here's the deal.  Darren Johnson, Tinker Geobase Coordinator, confirms that installation order is the culprit.  I installed .NET 2.0 a year or two ago, long before installing IIS, which was recently when I installed AGS.  Installing IIS does pick up the .NET and register it if IIS is installed after .NET.  There you are.
Thanks again for all suggestions.

This is from our in-house ArcGIS Server expert:

It looks like IIS is not configured for ASP.NET. What OS is he running this on?

1. Check to see if the ASP.NET framework 2.0 is installed

2. Register the framework with IIS -> Open command prompt, go to C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727 and type in aspnet_regiis -i.

3. Check to see if the aspx page is working

4. Check if Manager is working

Subject: [OKGIS] IIS displays code instead of page.

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 asp.net 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 asp.net 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?
