This error occurs when you use the following syntax:
<%@ LANGUAGE="VBScript" Response.Write "Generic ASP Code" ' Generic ASP Code %>

If more than one processing directive is needed on an ASP page, use the following code for two or more processing directives:
<%@ LANGUAGE="VBScript" ENABLESESSION="False" %>
