I am attempting to run VPASP locally on Windows 7 for test purposes. I have followed the help guide for installing IIS on Windows 7. IIS appears to be fine, typing localhost in a browser shows the IIS welcome screen. When I run the VPASP default.asp script I get the 404 Page cannot be found message. Running the default.htm file allows the setup process to proceed through to the database connection test. Here it fails with 'cannot connect to database'. The admin script also failes to connect to the database with 'provider not found' errors.
Is there another package that needs to be installed for VPASP to run locally on Windows 7?

Windows 7
Access database
IIS installed
shop$config.asp contains:
const xDatabase="athv1000" 'Database name
const xDbLocation="C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\VPASP_7_0\database"
const xmysite="localhost/vpasp_7_0/"

Any help is appreciated.

maybe shop$config.asp should contains this : const xmysite="http://localhost/vpasp_7_0" rather than const xmysite="localhost/vpasp_7_0/"
