Classic asp page generating 404 error in IIS 7


I have an application running in IIS 7.5. I have a standalone classic asp page that I've migrated from another site that I've now included as part of the application. I'm hosting the application on my local machine, but whenever I navigate to the classic asp page, I get a 404 Not Found error. The page is not missing and I have turned on ASP in IIS through Windows features. The pages are working fine.

Curiously, I have been able to host the page as its own site in IIS, but not when it's integrated with

The IIS logfile contains the following line for the request:

2013-11-06 16:25:33 GET /test/testpage.asp - 80 [username] [system info] 404 0 2 120

Thanks for any and all suggestions, let me know if you need any more information.

I got Failed Request Tracing working and was able to find this error in the logfiles when I traced the MODULE_SET_RESPONSE_ERROR_STATUS event:

ModuleName IIS Web Core 
Notification 16 
HttpStatus 404 
HttpReason Not Found 
HttpSubStatus 0 
ErrorCode 2147942402 
ErrorCode The system cannot find the file specified. (0x80070002)

Ok, so the solution to this problem was super embarrassing - the link to the page was wrong, which was why it was working in every other capacity. At least I learned a lot about IIS?
