Python is not a supported language RRS feed

  • User156944936 posted

    I know .aspx files work because I just tested one using C#. But Python is what I want to be working in. The test script I have been using is at http://www.4guysfromrolla.com/webtech/082201-1.shtml . I get an error that Python is not a supported language.

    I have installed:

    PyWin32 at http://starship.python.net/crew/mhammond/win32/Downloads.html

    IronPython 1.1 (Nov. 2nd)

     Ajax Extension

     ASP.NET Visual Studio Futures

    Visual Studio 2005 plus 2007.02 SDK


    What do I still need to do to be able to use Python is my .aspx?

    Hi Hotaru,

    It definitely works. you can see here:


    the IDE mentioned is Visual Web Developer, so Visual Studio 2005 should be able to work too. But no installation steps mentioned.

    I know it is supposed to work, but it doesn't.

    It is IronPython that is supported. [:)]

    You likely don't have the right bits installed.

    - do all assemblies exist under bin of your web app?

    - does web.config have the needed settings?

            <pages compilationMode="Auto"

                <add path="*.py" verb="*" type="System.Web.HttpForbiddenHandler" validate="true" />

                <add name="DynamicLanguageHttpModule" type="Microsoft.Web.Scripting.DynamicLanguageHttpModule"/>
