INFO: Versions of Active Server Pages

ID: Q170768

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Visual InterDev, versions 1.0, 6.0


There have been several versions of Active Server Pages since its release. The following article shows the versions and the primary changes.


   ASP      ASP       Asp.dll    Asp.dll    Asp.dll
   version  build     version    date       size
   1.0      1.12.09   1.12.06    12/6/96
   1.0a     1.13.31   1.13.09    1/31/97    371,744
   1.0b     1.15.14   1.15.14    3/14/97    378,992 

Version 1.0a introduced very minor changes, and version 1.0b added support for the following:

  • Double-byte character sets and the code page attribute.
  • Request.BinaryRead (allows the ASP script to read binary data that is posted to the server, such as a file upload.)
  • A bug fix addressing an error you could receive under specific circumstances with ASP 1.0a and prior. The error message "Invalid Application Name" was caused by a problem in Active Server Page's handling of Access Control Lists (ACLs)

(This fix was previously available in a hotfix of the Asp.dll version 1.14.07 dated 2/17/97, For additional information, please see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

A Note About NT Service Packs and ASP Updates

Updating Windows NT with a service pack will not automatically update ASP. The NT SP3 CD includes a separate ASP folder with a stand-alone setup that will upgrade ASP to 1.0b, but this setup must be run separately from the service pack setup. If you download the service pack online, the file you receive does not include any additional files such as the ASP upgrade. In this case, you will want to go to and download the latest version of ASP.
