Hello everybody.

I have just deployed a new server running SBS2008 with IIS7.  I want to publish a site that runs ASP .Net, which runs perfectly on another server.

I create the new site on IIS7 and copy all the files from the site.  Up to here, everything is OK.

The problem comes when I enable 32 bit application on advanced configuration, as I call a 32bit DLL and without this option enabled, it crashes.

After enabling this, every trial to access any page from that site causes an ERROR 500. Even trying to access a simple html file saying "Hello world" without any html tag causes this error.

I tried all the steps explained on page     but it did not help.

Any idea?

Thanks in advance!
