I have taken over the maintenance of an old ASP based web site and when checking the site it was returning a 80004005 Error.

I think this is something to do with the code line <!--include file=">. Possibly the web host is treating these as suspect ASP codes.

The .inc pages contain code to operate the page, and it might be advisable to incorporate the code the the ASP page rather that get it to be included, or simply just changing the .inc file to another suffix.

Any advice would be gratefully received

Include files are fine to use in Classic ASP and are used regularly.

A 80004005 error usaully refers to an issue with using an Access database.

Make sure that the folder containing the Access database has write permissions.

If you have moved the application to a Windows 2008/2012 server it could be that the server is not configured for Access databases. Make sure that the application pool for the website is running in 32bit mode and the Windows\Temp folder has read, write, and modify permissions for the IUSR Group.

Thanks for the reply, seriously thinking of upgrading from Access database to Microsoft SQL which hopefully will overcome this problem, or alternately transfer the whole site over to PHP

Strange thing though, took down the code which had the fault and put up a site that was originally built in 2006/7 using mainly the same code, but no problems with this, works straight out of the box.
