  • Re: Continue Supporting Classic ASP Indefinitely

    By the way, the 10 year support is for Windows 8, not specifically ASP Classic.  It may be that ASP Classic is dropped in Windows 9 and you'd need to continue running Windows 8 for a decade to use ASP Classic.

    My guess (Only a guess) is that ASP Classic will always be available.  It's basically a DLL that runs to interpret ASP scripts, no real support is needed other than to have that DLL available and associated with the .asp extension.  Until that DLL no longer will work on a new operating system, there wouldn't be any reason to remove it.

    Eventually all the ASP Classic programmers will retire and it will be a dead language.  :)
