I just called their "engineers" about the "web server central configuration
busy" error. It seemed no-one had a clear answer as to what causes this
problem. The "engineer" stated that I need to give the IUSR account RWXD
permissions instead of just RWD permissions. When did anonymous user need to
have execute permissions on a lock file with no contents? IF it were a
permissions problem, why does rebooting the server correct the problem?

While talking with the customer service lady, I asked about who to call about
getting the updated asp.dll file version 1.23.11. She asked what was ASP. I
told her it was a part of IIS. "What is IIS?" she replied. I greatly lost

If anybody has the updated asp.dll version 1.23.11 please email it to me. I'm
not confident Microsoft Support will know what the #)($)(* I'm talking about!
This asp.dll corrects the Invalid Application Error when trying to execute an
ASP file in a subweb/subdirectory.

A previous list member stated that there are some RAM checkers. Can anyone
point to a freeware version for NT server or do I have to buy a product to do
this? Do I trust the boot-up RAM checker? Nope.

My inetinfo.dll could be the result of Microsoft's sloppy handling of ISAPI and
memory space.

IF anyone on the list has a question on the FrontPage extensions, feel free to
email me. You can also visit my FrontPage website at - The FrontPage 98 Refugee Camp.

Thanks to everyone for making this list one of the best and most informative!

Hi All,

I'm getting inetinfo.exe errors too.

I just installed a Server certificate, and now whenever I go to a page that
should be secure (https://), On my server's console, I get an inetinfo.exe
error, IIS stops ALL services, and I have to manually re-start the web
server, or reboot the computer to get things running normally
again.....well, until I or someone else tries to do a https:// connection

I'm not dumb, but it doesn't seem to me that it should be this dificult to
get a secure server going.....

Pentium 200
128 megs RAM
NT 4 (SP3+hotfixes)

I'd call Microsoft Tech support, but after spending 2 frustrating hours on
hold (on my dime) just a few days ago while at a clients location for a
completely different scenario, I'm not optimistic that their $5.25/hr-just
learned what computers are, looky at this cool screen tech support people
can answer my question.

Has anyone else had the same problems?

Thanks in advance.
