Glad it worked out for you. 8-)

Note that you would probably not want to run the application pool as LocalSystem in a production environment, this would increase your exposure to any security issue - this indicates that there was something that NetworkService could not get permission for,
surprised that you did not see anything in the process-monitor logs.

Setting this up with Vista has been absolutely painful. I made it work for local testing purposes and it's now using SpecificUser instead of NetworkService or LocalSystem so that I can specify an administrator account on the machine. If I don't do this,
none of my database calls work.
I couldn't get SQL Server 2005 to install on Vista either and have VMware running XP x64 so I can connect to it. The setup is
nuts, but it works. My production environment is third-party hosted and does not involve Vista... so none of this is an issue.

I have the same problem, but after changing the identity of the application pool from "NetworkService" to "LocalSystem", all ASP pages start working, but any asp application that uses the Application, Session or Server objects now fail (and that is pretty
much all ASP applications).
I now get an error like this:
/Default.asp, line 4"
Where on that line is either code using Application, Session or a Server object. All other code above that works. These pages used to work about a week ago. I did not change anything in the ASP files or anything else. Please help, I have tried everything,
including uninstalling and reinstalling IIS and ASP. It still does not work.

Well this is the first time I see 'resource in use' for IIS 7 :)
If it works via LocalSystem, then I suggest you check if NetworkService has read&execute permission for asp.dll. If it is then need to figure out where networkservice having access issue. Get Procmon from MS and trace it.

I have a similar problem. I set up and was working and what I did was I run a test website in visual studio 2008 and then I couldnt view classic asp pages again . generating error 500 . Tracing gives me ErrorCode: 0x800700aa. It also tells me that
Execute_request_handler: The requested resource is in use(0x800700aa) I checked and found out that asp.dll was not set up but can also not be found in the resources available to add. Strange. I am using vista business.

I am having a nearly identical problem. My classic asp pages work until I use one of the Application, session or server objects, then I get the '8002901d' error as well. Checking Event Viewer / Windows Logs / Application, I have the following entry each
time the page is executed
"Error: The Template Persistent Cache initialization failed for Application Pool 'ASP.NET 1.1' because of the following error: Could not create a Disk Cache Sub-directory for the Application Pool. The data may have additional error codes.."
These asp pages worked fine until I installed Vista Service Pack 1, then all fail. I've already lost the restore point to before SP1 was installed, and uninstalling SP1 did not resolve. I've tried every suggestion I could find on the web for IIS 7 setup,
but nothing so far has fixed this for me.

I've been trying to resolve this problem for months. I finally gave up on classic ASP on my Vista machine and kept another older box around specifically to maintain 1 application. I just came across this post last night and now I'm off and running.
Can't thank you enough, alopez2007. I had to register here just to give you a shout... really... thanks a bunch!

I'm looking for solution few days in a row now and even this fix is not working for me.
Still http 500 with error code 0x800700aa.
Removed/installed few times too ... any other way to fix this? I need it fixed badly.
