Problem Loading CFM files on IIS6

Setting up CFMX7 Standard on W2K3 SP1 with IIS 6.0 server. IIS is setup for NTLM authentication. Using IE, if I view any HTML page, it comes down fine. Using FF, it prompts me for creds, I enter, login, everything is good.  

However, when I point to a CFM file, I get prompted for username/password *even in Internet Explorer*. I provide, get denied. I look in the event viewer and I show a successful login event for the user, but I get denied access to the file. If I put in an invalid CFM page, I get the prompt too - which makes me think that it's a permissions issue somewhere, but before I get to the file.  If I turn *off* NTLM, I get a DNS error - but again, only on CFM pages, HTML runs fine.

IIS is setup to run as LocalSystem, as is ColdFusion. The SYSTEM account has full access to D:\CFUSIONMX7 and all subfolders, as well all the Intranet web folders.  

I've toggled the "Verify File Exist" option for CFM files in IIS, uninstalled and reinstalled the connectors, and all that jazz, no good.

You should also double check and make sure that the NETWORK account has access to the files in the Intranet web folders.

Also check your browser settings.  Wierdly we have found the you must leave "Enable integrated windows authentication" unchecked!

I know this is another simple one, but something to look at just in case.  Check your execute permissions in IIS and make sure that it's set to either "Scripts Only" or "Scripts and Executables" (if you have any reason to allow executable files to run on your site).

BigSnazz: I will check on this when I return to work later today, but since the application pool is running as LocalSystem, I didn't think this was necessary.  Worth a shot.

wytcom: It's enabled in the browser.

BigSnazz, it's set as Scripts Only.

Sid: I ran through that article, the vbs returned what was expected.  I did not get as far as configuring the 0 byte files or custom errors, however.

More things I've tried:

Setup EVERYONE with FULL ACCESS to C: and D:, propigated to all sub folders and files, tried again - no dice.  Then, I setup a user TESTADMIN in group ADMINISTRATORS and used that account when the client was prompted for a password, still nothing.

Next thought is uninstall/reinstall CF perhaps.

Wouldn't believe it if I didn't do it myself, but I uninstalled and reinstalled fresh, and STILL have the same problem in IIS! This works fine in the built in web server on port 8500, however. ARG!

That could be the problem.  As I said before, we found that you have to DISABLE it!

Resolved, but thanks everyone for your ideas.  I blogged about the solution (http://www.coldfusionusers.com/cfblog/2006/05/18/recent-troubles-with-iis-60-coldfusion-mx7/).  The long and short of it is that I had to reinstall IIS 6 and make sure all the files installed were SP 1 safe.
