    Re: Continue Supporting Classic ASP Indefinitely

    Dec 04, 2013 12:50 PM|Rovastar|LINK

    I was going to reply with much of what Jeff said and to be honest I wish we would see the back of it and I know there is so much of it about. I am consulting at the moment migrating a load of legacy classic asp site to the AWS cloud.

    And I was curious and goggled it and it seems you are in luck.

    The use of ASP pages "will be supported on Windows 8 for a minimum of 10 years from the Windows 8 release date" You have nearly a decade of classic asp support!

    Here is the official page:

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2669020

    What support means is another matter entirely. Online support is here on Forums.iis.net (only because strangely classic asp "belongs" to the IIS team) but I doubt  you will see any support from MS staff and it is forum that no-one wants to host......

    Maybe you can reply back to this thread in say 2022 and ask again if you want to support it indefinitely.
