PRB: Visual InterDev 1.0 Not Previewing ASP After IE4 Install
The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Visual InterDev, version
When you right-click an Active Server Pages (ASP) file that is
open in the Visual InterDev editor and select "Preview xxx.asp"
from the Shortcut menu, the File Download dialog box appears, and
the ASP file opens in the FrontPage (Visual InterDev Edition) editor,
instead of previewing in the browser.
NOTE: This behavior does not occur when choosing "Preview in
Browser" when right-clicking on the file in the "Workspace"
The conditions that cause this error to occur are as follows:
- Internet Explorer 4.0 is installed
on the client machine.
- The "Preview xxx.asp"
menu is used from the ASP editor to view the ASP page.
There is no workaround at this time.
Microsoft is researching this problem and will post new information
here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
Steps to Reproduce Behavior
- Open or create a new project
- Open or create a new ASP file.
- Save the file.
- In the editor, right-click the
file and select "Preview xxx.asp", where xxx is the
name of your file.
