HTTP Error 404.17 - Not Found The requested content appears to be script and will not be served by the static file handler. Detailed Error Information Module StaticFileModule Notification ExecuteRequestHandler Handler StaticFile Error Code 0x80070032 Requested URL http://demo.com:80/demo/default.aspx Physical Path C:\Inetpub\vhosts\demo.com\httpdocs\demo\default.aspx Logon Method Anonymous Logon User Anonymous Most likely causes:

The request matched a wildcard mime map. The request is mapped to the static file handler. If there were different pre-conditions, the request will map to a different handler.

Things you can try:

If you want to serve this content as a static file, add an explicit MIME map.


This is because .Net isn't configured correctly in IIS.

I ran into this in Windows Server 8 under IIS - Even after installing .Net 3.5 (and hence 2.0) IIS wasn't configured properly - So the static file handler was trying to handle .aspx requests - Resulting in this error.

The fix is simple:

Launch Command Prompt - Start - cmd.exe cd C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64[Dot Net Version] aspnet_regiis -ir You should see output like:

Start installing ASP.NET [Dot Net Version]. ................ Finished installing ASP.NET [Dot Net Version].

At this point if you refresh your page it should work properly.
