    Installing ASP-db and Tornado in Windows 7

    I got W7 and have been using it for a few days. It works pretty much the same as VISAT except a few programs fail to run and some applications has to be worked on. For example, if you do not have hardware virtualization then you have to uninstall the Virtual Machine Updates, Uninstall the program and then install the old VPC2007. Delete the state file and use the old .vmc file and you can use the virtual machine to develop classic ASP-db in XP mode. If your hardware is new then you can use the build-in Virtual Machine of W7. Other than that classic ASP-db loads into the Component Services the same way. remember to uncheck the "Enforce Access Checks" as well as check the "Allow IIS Intrinsic properties" as in VISTA.

    Tornado works exactly the same way as before.

    Install Classic ASP-db in VISTA and W7

    When installing classic ASP-db in VISTA and W7, remember to setup your server directory as application instead of virtual directory. Otherwise you'll get an HTTP 500.19 error.

    Note that you may encounter a problem of the ID file not found. Turn on the ID file tracing using x.dbDebug=109. See the following example. The ID is in the system 32 directory but the O/S prohibit that to be read and reports an error. The work around is to do -

    1. x.dbIDfileDir = "C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\ASPdb\GOLD2009.ID"
    Specify exactly where is the ID file.
    2. Store the ID file in -> C:\inetpub\wwwroot\aspdb\DLL\_ASPDB2009.ID

    ...Looking for ID file: C:\Windows\system32\_ASPDB2009.ID
    ...Not found in C:\Windows\system32\_ASPDB2009.ID (The file is there !!)
    ID file located in C:\inetpub\wwwroot\aspdb\DLL\_ASPDB2009.ID
    Version = CLASSIC ASPDB-06-28-09-XP-SP3-ADO21-MTS-Gold
    ID file path = C:\inetpub\wwwroot\aspdb\DLL\_ASPDB2009.ID
