VBScript compilation error '800a0401'

VBScript compilation error '800a0401'

I just downloaded CSS Menu writer and am trying it out for the first time but got an error right away. The error displayed on the browser page is:

Microsoft VBScript compilation error '800a0401'

Expected end of statement

/CSSMenuWriter/cssmw/menu.asp, line 2

var WA_localRoot = "/RiverOfGod/";
---------------------------------^

When I go to menu.asp lines 1-3 are:

<%
var WA_localRoot = "/RiverOfGod/";
var WA_remoteRoot = "/RiverOfGod/";

That info is the correct directories so I'm not sure what to do. I tried inserting the menu in a blank page, and it loads/works fine then. The dreamweaver page I'm inserting it into loads fine before the menu is inserted.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Solved it!

When I put <%@LANGUAGE="JAVASCRIPT" CODEPAGE="65001"%> in the head of my dw page, it loads and works fine. There was other Java code on the page that was working fine, so I don't understand why, but I'm sure it makes sense to someone.

I'm just glad to know what to do. :)

the code:
<%@LANGUAGE="JAVASCRIPT" CODEPAGE="65001"%>


tells the IIS server to use the javascript processing engine for ASP code, the default is to use the VBScript Engine.

when using ASP Javascript, you need to include that code at line of your pages to tell the IIS server which processing engine to use.

Thanks for the explanation, Jason. So does this mean I need to be careful about having code that use VBScript on the same page or do they "play well" together?

you should not switch between ASP javascript and ASP VBScript, choose one and stick to it.
