When you develop Visual Basic Internet Information Server (IIS) applications (WebClasses) on Microsoft Windows 98, you may not be able to access any session or application variables from the Global.asa file. This problem may also occur when you work locally (in Local Mode) in a Visual InterDev project.
The virtual directory that Visual Basic (or Visual InterDev in Local Mode) sets up is not created as an application. For Global.asa to fire, the virtual directory must be an application. When Global.asa fires, the session and application variables are set to the appropriate values.
To resolve this problem, remove the existing virtual directory, and create a new virtual directory in Personal Web Manager as follows:
To verify that the Global.asa file is firing, you can write out any session variable or application variable from Global.asa in your WebClass or Active Server Pages (ASP) page.
