Problems with friendly URL's


When deploying a new site which is using CMS 5 R2 we're experiencing problems getting the url-rewriting to work.

We've set up the site as we've done with previous CMS 5 sites that got friendly url's working just fine.

Anyone else experienced this problem with the R2-version? I've noticed there are some differences in web.config for this version - do we need to set up stuff differently?

Here are a few lines from the debuglog:

It looks like you haven't configured the wild card mapping, did you install this site manually or using the installation manager ?

Hi, the site was installed manually.

Wild-card mapping has allready been added in IIS for the website (directing to C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\aspnet_isapi.dll).

Btw, this is installed on a Windows Server 2003 with SP2 running IIS 6.

Ok, did you uncheck "Verify that file exists" when adding the wild card mapping ?

Thank you. Unchecking that one did the trick. :)
