Active Server Pages (ASP) support in Windows

Active Server Pages (ASP) enables Web servers to dynamically generate Web pages and create interactive Web applications by using server-side scripting technology. The use of ASP pages with Internet Information Services (IIS) is currently supported on all supported versions of IIS.

The next major version of Internet Information Services (IIS) will be shipped as part of the Windows 8 operating system. The use of ASP pages will be supported on Windows 8 for a minimum of 10 years from the Windows 8 release date.

ASP is supported with all currently supported versions of IIS. IIS is shipped as part of the Windows operating systems, and therefore both ASP and IIS support lifetimes are tied to the support lifecycle of the host operating system. The following table illustrates the support lifecycle for the current Windows operating systems:
