    Guys,

    Can anyone suggest the reason why I could be getting this

    HTTP 500 - Internal server error
    Internet Explorer

    rather than the script error reported on the internet explorer browser. This
    is an ASP application running on Windows Server 2003.

    I've set up a custom error page using a URL of either /Error.asp or
    /RetrievalSite2.0/Error.asp in the root of the web app as type URL however
    this doesn't appear.

    Does anyone know the best way of diagnosing this issue.

    I received this in the w3svc log file

    2006-09-28 09:14:31 1.0.0.83 GET /RetrievalSite2.0/mainScreen/MainFrames.asp
    locale=en-gb|3|ASP_0131|Disallowed_Parent_Path 80 - 1.0.0.30
    Mozilla/4.0+(compatible;+MSIE+6.0;+Windows+NT+5.1;+SV1;+.NET+CLR+1.1.4322;+InfoPath.1;+.NET+CLR+2.0.50727)
    500 0 0

    So the error is clear Disallowed_Parent_Path however why isn't this reported
    in the ASP page to the client?

    Thanks

    Matt

    Did you turn on the option in IIS to send error messages to the client? Did
    you turn off Show Friendly Error Messages in IE?
