We're starting ASP in school, and the computers are running WinXP Pro (which I think comes with IIS 6). Anyways, we're playing around with opening and writing to text files, so I wrote this piece of code:
Now, I'm trying to run it on my laptop, and it doesn't work! I have the data.txt file in the appropriate folder, but it keeps giving a HTTP 500 error. I got it to run fine on the WinXP computers, but not on my own. My guess is that there's some weird incompatibility with IIS 7 that comes with Vista...
