This attribute works like a compatibility option. As mentioned before ASP worked in STA model and ASP.NET works in MTA model, but what if your ASP.NET application is using a VB COM component. In order that VB COM runs properly in ASP.NET threading model we have to set attribute. After defining the ASPCOMPAT directive attribute ASP.NET pages runs in STA model thus building the compatibility between ASP.NET and old COM components that does not support MTA model.
