I am using Vista Ultimate and Visual Studio 2005 and Expression Web. I can run Hello_World.aspx and defualt.htm from both the development servers in VS and EW without issue. However, when I try to run the same files from IIS7, I receive the Server Error
below. I have setup the site as a virtual directory in IIS7, and all files are local to my C drive. What is odd to me is that iisstart.htm does work from local host without problem, so it seems that its a problem with my virtual directories. Any help is
Description: The page cannot be displayed because an internal server error has occurred.

What you can try:
This error means that there was a problem while processing the request. The request was received by the Web server, but during processing a fatal error occurred, causing the 500 error.

Obvious question: What happened when you tried the suggestions in the "What you can try:" section?

I tried to create a trace rule for error 500. I followed the setup as prescribed in "Troubleshooting Failed Requests using Tracing in IIS7". I was able to successfully duplicate the lab example to capture a 404.2 error and create a log - running from wwwroot.
However, when I change the capture error to 500, and run from my virtual directory, it doesn't create a log. Any suggestions.

Seem to have solved my issue with the following:
1. Removed IIS and WAS. Re-installed with the following settings:
Web Management Tools (default) - IIS Management Console
WWW Services - Application Development Features - ALL
- Common Http Features - ALL
- Health and Diagnostics - ALL
- Performance Tracing - ALL
- Security (default) - Request Filtering
2. Add "Users" to folder security options for each folder being added as a virtual directory in IIS7
I got the suggestion from the following
Additional Question: Any suggestions on these IIS7 settings, or are the above settings OK for dev purposes? Thanks.

We were also having same issue while configuring IIS7 in Windows Server 2008. 2 days we searched like anything got so desperate and finally we got the issue. In our case it was due to compatilbility issues between 64bit OS and 32bin application....Thank
god.. then we searched for setting 32bit support.
You can 'Enable 32 bit Application' from 'Application Pool' advance settings which will enable 32bit mode 'Worker Process'. Check the following links.
