asp.net RewritePath not working on live server but works on testing server

I have added some .asp pages to our website, but I need them to display .aspx along with the other real .aspx pages.

So I am using RewritePath and an array that take the url ***.aspx and pulls in the ****.asp page.

Everything works perfect on my testing server which is supposed to be an exact match of the live server.

On the liv server I get this error:
Exception information:
    Exception type: HttpException
    Exception message: Path '/***.asp' is forbidden.
Here is my code for the RewritePath
'RewritePath - .aspx page to load .asp content
        Dim originalPath As String = HttpContext.Current.Request.Path.ToLower()
        Dim pageNameArray As New ArrayList()
        pageNameArray.Add("webinars")
        pageNameArray.Add("company-profile")
        pageNameArray.Add("sales-leads")
        pageNameArray.Add("financials")
        pageNameArray.Add("executive-bios")
        
        For i As Integer = 0 To pageNameArray.Count - 1
            If originalPath.Contains(pageNameArray(i).ToString() & ".aspx") Then
                HttpContext.Current.RewritePath(pageNameArray(i).ToString() & ".asp")
            End If
        Nex

I believe you need to enable the module in IIS to rewrite the paths

You need just to give the file permission just give it read and write permission on the folder this is writing to.
