Active Server Pages (ASP) enables web servers to dynamically generate webpages and create interactive web applications by using server-side scripting technology. The use of ASP pages with Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) is currently supported in all supported versions of IIS.
The next major version of IIS will be included in the Windows 8 operating system. The use of ASP pages will be supported on Windows 8 for a minimum of 10 years from the Windows 8 release date.
ASP is supported with all currently supported versions of IIS. IIS is included in Windows operating systems, and therefore both ASP and IIS support lifetimes are tied to the support lifecycle of the host operating system. The following table summarizes the support lifecycles for the current Windows operating systems:
