You’ve no doubt seen those strange directories such as _vti_bin, _vit_adm and _vti_aut. Inside those directories are DLLs such as author.dll and admin.dll. These are ISAPI extensions that handle VID’s requests to create webs, fetch ASP code, and so on.
Here’s a trivia note: the letters VTI in the directories came from Vermeer Technologies Inc., the originator of FrontPage. Microsoft acquired Vermeer.
