The Windows CE ASP-page interpreter processes a file with an .asp extension when it is requested by the client browser, assuming that the following conditions are met:
The JScript.dll or VBScript.dll file must be set up properly on the device. If the requested script language is not present on the device or has not been initialized, the Web server returns an error that states, "Error in initializing scripting engine."
You can map a virtual path to a specific ASP page instead of a directory. For example, a client browser could request http://www.computername.com/directory and be mapped to a specific ASP page, such as Finance.asp. Using the functionality is identical to mapping virtual paths to ISAPI extensions. For more information, see ISAPI Extensions.
Like ISAPI DLLs, the Web server keeps Asp.dll and any libraries that ASP loads — including JScript.dll, VBScript.dll, and any DLLs that contain COM objects that were created on the page — in a cache. The DLLs in this cache are unloaded automatically by the Web server if they have not been used for 20 minutes.
