    Hi folks...I've just installed asp.net framework and asp.net sdk and I've
    cut and pasted a file from the web to test that it works.

    The problem is that I get this error message which says:

    Line: 3
    Char: 9
    Error: Expected ';'
    Code: 0
    URL: Http://localhost/helloworld5.aspx

    Anyway this is what I tried. http://www.asp101.com/lessons/firstpage.asp

    I know it must be a really basic syntax error but wtf; I just copy and
    pasted this code which really really should be correct. I also am working on
    one of my intro pracs and it also returned the same error so what's going

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The code I used is shown below:

    <%@ Page Language="VB" %>
    <script runat="server">
    Sub Page_Load(Sender As Object, E As EventArgs)
    HelloWorld.Text = "Hello World!"
    End Sub

    <title>ASP.NET Hello World</title>
    <body bgcolor="#FFFFFF">

    <p><asp:label id="HelloWorld" runat="server" /></p>

    Hi mate, the .NET newsgroups have 'dotnet' in them. You'll get better
    mileage asking your question there.
