Technical guidance, explanations and fixes for our products

PRB: Zetafax Web client Test.aspx reports "Not Attempted" for each of the tests.



ID: ZTN1346

This Zetafax technical note applies to:

  • Zetafax version 8.0.1 Web Client


After you install the Zetafax Web Client you browse to http://localhost/zetafax to use it. Instead of the expected rich interface you get a flat HTML page with lots of unintelligible text. You then bring up the http://localhost/zetafax/test.aspx page to test the application, but all of the tests are 'Not Attempted'.


Internet Information Services (IIS) has been reinstalled and the ASP.Net script mappings have been lost.


Use < windir> \Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\aspnet_regiis.exe with the -i switch  to install this version of ASP.NET and update scriptmaps at the IIS metabase root and for all scriptmaps below the root.

NOTE: Existing scriptmaps of lower version are upgraded to this version.

For more information please refer to Microsoft knowledge base article, 306005. "HOWTO: Repair IIS Mapping After You Remove and Reinstall IIS".


This has been identified by Equisys as a problem when the conditions above occur.
