Setting Aspnet_isapi.dll for Wildcard Applications

Some components such as the iFinity URL rewriter require an aspnet_isapi.dll wildcard mapping in order to work.  If you are a shared hosting client on a server running IIS 6, please contact support to request assistance with this. Shared hosting clients on servers running IIS 7 or IIS 8 can modify their web.config file as outlined in the steps below.
For a Site Hosted on a Server Running IIS 7 and IIS 8 in Classic Pipeline Mode.
  1. Open the web.config file for your site. See How to Access Your Web.Config.
  2.  Locate the <system.webserver> entry <handlers> section.
  3. Add the appropriate entry at the bottom of the list of handlers for your site (.NET 2.0 or .NET 4.0):
    .NET 2.0
    <add responsebufferlimit="4194304" precondition="classicMode,runtimeVersionv2.0,bitness64" allowpathinfo="false" requireaccess="Script" resourcetype="Unspecified" scriptprocessor="C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727\aspnet_isapi.dll" modules="IsapiModule" type="" verb="*" path="*" name="Wildcard Script Map"/>
    .NET 4.0
    <add name="v40 64 bit Wildcard Script Map" path="*" verb="*" modules="IsapiModule" scriptProcessor="C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\aspnet_isapi.dll" resourceType="Unspecified" requireAccess="None" preCondition="classicMode,runtimeVersionv4.0,bitness64" />
  4. Save the web.config file.
For a Site Hosted on a Server Running IIS 7 or IIS 8 in Integrated Pipeline Mode.
  1. Open the web.config file for your site. See How to Access Your Web.Config
  2. Locate the <system.webserver> entry <handlers> section.
  3. Add in a new attribute for 'modules', so that it says
    <modules runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests="true">

    The runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests attribute may not exist, or it may exist and you just have to change the value from false to true.
  4. Save the web.config file.
For a Site Hosted on a Server Running IIS 6 
  1. Log onto the dedicated server using Remote Desktop.
  2. Open up IIS by clicking on Start > Administrative Tools > Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager (or Start > Run > inetmgr).
  3. Expand the Web Sites directory.
  4. Right click on the website you are setting this up for and click on Properties.
  5. Click on the Home Directory tab.
  6. Click on Configuration.
  7. Under Application extensions, choose the .aspx extension and click on edit.
