I am a Uni student just starting in course on nWeb development. To demonstrate IIS we have a small HTML program to load into IIS and display using localhost. The course uses Windows XP for the example and IIS6. I can get the exercise to work on my other
PC which has this software but am unable to get it to run on my laptop which has Vista for Business installed. I get the above message with the following
Description: The resource you are looking for does not have a handler associated with it.
Error Code: 0x80070002
Module: IIS Web Core
Requested URL: http://localhost:80/hello.htm.
Physical Path: C:\inetpub\wwwroot\hello.htm.
Logon User: Anonymous
Logon Method: Anonymous
Handler: Not yet determined
Most likely causes:
What you can try:
Server Version Information: Internet Information Services 7.0.
I asked my tutor who suggested
1. I disable IIS in the Services Control Panel - which I did and this makes no difference or
2. Change the proxy port in the proxy tab in the advanced configuration to something like 8080.
I have not done part 2 yet but I think the problem does not lie there. Any clue would be appreciated
The file is called hello.htm and is in c:\inetpub\wwwroot
it contains the following code
<?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "utf-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//s3c//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN"
<html xmlns = "html://www.w3c.org/1999/xhtml">
<title>Hello World - page</title>

Thanks that fixed it - there was no StaticFile Handler so I added one using the System.Web.DefaultHttpHandler hopefully this was correct. It all works now and yes the .html version does work as well

So which Windows and IIS Server are you using ?
This thread is dealing with Vista and Windows XP which one are you having problems with ?
Have you checked that the Required Features have been added from Windows Control Panel ?
