I am having the time of my life with IIS7 - really. (There are no smileys showing sarcasm so I hope you can see through it!)
I have a laptop with Vista Business, and I've enabled every last feature in IIS7 (since there's so much more to it than IIS6, I wanted to start off without missing anything). I have some old sites that worked well in IIS6 (including my old
campaign website) which were all ASP with an MS Access database.
I tried to test this site, and a much simpler site (that's only named .asp, but has no VB within it whatsoever), and I'm getting an error when I try to serve either using IIS7 from
Error: 500.0 (Internal Server Error)
Error Code: 0x80070005
Event Viewer specifies this simple log:
Could not load all ISAPI filters for site 'sitename'. Therefore site startup aborted.
It also gives this detailed information:
Has anyone encountered a similar error? I know there are several steps to enable ASP in IIS, but what seems like something that should be simple, is instead fast becoming a growing pain.
Any help is much appreciated.
(I've also attached the full HTTP error below displayed in the browser)

I would search \windows\system32\inetsrv\config for any <isapiFilters> section. Are there ISAPI filters registered in configuration that aren't on the system? That would cause the error...

Hi there Bill,
I checked - all ISAPI filters registered do appear in the applicationHost.config file as I expect it to appear.
Still lost :'(

Filemon for Vista has been updated to process monitor
1) check to make sure the Handler mapping for asp is enabled
2) browse the ASP feature to see if anything stands out.
3) Does aspx and htm pages work?

I checked for the first two things and nothing unusual. I don't host aspx files but when I built a test asp file, it failed once, but another test ASP file worked (and there was nothing unusual about the two files).
I thought it may have also been a permissioning problem to the access DB but it doesn't appear to be the case. What's the coles notes on the IIS_WPG group, by the way?
Anyway, I'm growing increasingly impatient and I think I'm going to use IIS5 on my Win2K Server to serve pages, and I'll find a way to cache that on my laptop so I can work on my sites remotely without needing to access the server. IIS7 is way too much a

I had the same problem. All I did was change the folder permissions and it all work ok for me.
Network Services and Everyone should have Read + Execute.
Administrators and system should have FULL.
