Need help with a Helicon ISAPI Rewrite Rule

Can anyone point out what I'm doing wrong below... I'm pretty sure IIS and everything else is configured right because I've ran simple examples already that have worked by placing rules in the ".htaccess" folder of the "virtual-directory"....

=================

TRYING TO PASS THIS IN THE URL:

/virtual-directory/product_some-product-title-here_1234.htm

REWRITE RULE:

RewriteRule /virtual-directory/product_(true|false)(?:_([^/?._]+))?\.htm /virtual-directory/product/stat.cfm\?title=$1?2&id=$2: [I,L]

=================

Note that I'm currently running this on a local development computer first, so the IIS mapped "virtual-directory" will be non-existent when I go live. Here's a break down of the url structure I'm trying to do:

product_[some-product-title-here]_[1234].htm

The first bracketed section equals (title=) and the second would be (id=) in the rewrite rule.

=================

SYSTEM SETUP:

IIS, cold fusion, Helicon ISAPI Rewrite (full edition)

=================

As of this writing I'm getting the standard IIS "The page cannot be found".  I'm banging my head against a wall... any help would be great.  

Thanks.

That REGEX seems extremely complicated. HeliconTech.com has a forum and the admin always helps out with the REGEX over there. Try asking there.

/virtual-directory/product_(true|false)(?:_([^/?._]+))?\.htm

not sure what the true|false bit is doing.  or indeed the rest of the regex, it does seem complicated.
I'd probably try and write this regex like
 /virtual-directory/product_([[:print:]]+)_([[:print:]]+)\.html
