ASP startup page invokes a file download dialog

I'm relatively new to ASP.NET. I'm running it under Win XP Pro, using Visual
Studio 2002.NET (haven't migrated to VS2003 yet).

The ASP.NET application I'm having a problem with was initially set up on a
laptop running Win2000, where it ran successfully.

I've copied all the files over to my desktop, intending to support it there.
But it seems to have a problem upon startup: instead of initially displaying
the starting ASP.NET page as it should, it instead brings up the file
download dialog box, trying to download the starting ASP.NET page from my
local PC! If I click on OK, it appears to load the page, then stops without
displaying the page.

I've only tried one other very small ASP.NET application on this desktop PC,
and it seemed to run fine. But this problem application is much bigger.

It appears as if some system parameter is not set correctly, but I have no
idea what it is.

Can anyone offer a suggestion?

This is a classic asp newsgroup. While you may be lucky enough to find a
