    Hello, I am new to
    I want to write an asp file that sends a gif image to my client img tag
    as follows:

    <img src=img_script.asp>Hello</img>

    In my img_script.asp file I therefore need to open the image
    with binary reader like so:

    Imports System.IO
    Dim fs As FileStream = New FileStream("c:\data.txt", FileMode.Open)
    Dim r As BinaryReader = New BinaryReader(fs)

    I received the following error:

    Technical Information (for support personnel)

    a.. Error Type:
    Active Server Pages, ASP 0221 (0x80004005)
    The specified 'Page Language="VB" AutoEventWireup="false"
    CodeFile="Default.aspx.vb" Inherits="_Default" ' option is unknown or

    Thank you in advance for any assistance in solving this problem.

  2. Hi johan
    Its better to use a HttpHandler instead of an ASPX Page.
    This is because you are using ASP.NET Code on a file with the extension from
    "old" classic asp -> site.asp

    Hi johan,

    You need to be sure you have ASP.NET installed on your web server, than use
    the .aspx extention instead of .asp.

    I see, it does work now,

    How do I get intelisense to work? I am using vs2003 on a standalone aspx

    ....and how do I interface BinaryReader to Response.BinaryWrite?

    BinaryWrite expect a 'var' type

    Can I do it in one go or do I need to loop till EOF etc
