403 error using MVC on IIS6

17. November 2011 19:04


Here is an easy workaround that worked for me without any other changes on the server.

Open IIS snap in and select properties of virtual directory

Click Configuration... button on Virtual Directory tab

In the Mappings tab, click Insert... in the Wildcard application maps (order of implementation):

Enter the the full path to the 4.0 aspnet_isapi.dll (i.e. C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\aspnet_isapi.dll)

make sure the 'Verify that file exists' is unchecked.
