FIX: Users receive an "Object moved to here" error message when they open an ASP.NET Web page in the .NET Framework 1.1


On a computer that is running the Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1, when you compile and then deploy a Microsoft ASP.NET Web page, users may receive an error message that is similar to the following when they open the Web page in Microsoft Internet Explorer:
Object moved to here
Users may also receive a blank Web page.

Note This problem may occur if you use the Response.Redirect method and pass a false value for the endResponse parameter.

More Information

When you pass a false value for the endResponse parameter on the server, the server posts a 302 response to the request. Then, the server passes the rest of the Web page to the client computer. On the client computer, Internet Explorer reads the 302 response and then posts a GET command for the Web page that is the target of the redirection. When Internet Explorer retrieves the information from the server again, it retrieves the rest of the Web page that originated the redirection. Internet Explorer does not retrieve the Web page that is the target of the redirection as expected.
