Access denied error message trying to obtain WSDL document

Running under IIS6 on a Windows 2003 server, we're getting a 403 access denied error message trying to obtain the WSDL from the SOAP executable. An example URL is http://www.myserver.com/SoapService.exe/WSDL. We can retrieve other documents such as html pages from the same folder, but we can't run the SOAP executable. The app on IIS 6 is setup to allow both scripts and executables. The exact same code runs fine on another IIS6/Win2003 server. Any ideas where to start looking? Thanks.

do you have a web service extension enabled for that executable?

what resources does the executable access?  (registry keys, data files, etc) - you will need to make sure that the interactive web user has appropriate rights to access those resources.
