HTML source code is displayed instead of the intended web application content.

18 January 2005

Issue Description

HTML source code is displayed in the 'Preview' tab of the 'View Maintenance' window of the AnyView IDS Console when creating or modifying a view.

 

In addition, when navigating to the AnyView IDS URL (e.g. http://mywebsite/AnyViewIDS) either HTML source code or the following error message is displayed in the browser window:

"You are not authorized to view this page"

  HTTP Error 403 - Forbidden

Solution

If Internet Information Services (IIS) was installed after the .NET framework on a given machine, then it is likely that ASP.NET has not been registered with IIS.  As a result HTML source code is displayed instead of the intended web application content in the 'Preview' tab of the 'View Maintenance' window of the AnyView IDS Console

 

To resolve this, ASP.NET must be registered with IIS by following the steps outlined below:

 

  1. Open a 'Command Prompt' window.  A typical location in Windows is Start > Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt.
  2. From the command line navigate to: 

C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322 

  1. Register ASP.NET 1.1.4322 by executing: 

Aspnet_regiis -i 

  1. A message will be generated telling you that the installation has started, and another message will tell you when the installation has finished.
