Is the /umbraco/ folder configured as an application in IIS? I've done this a few times in IIS7 when I've accidentally linked an app as a Virtual Directory instead of as an application. Just right-click on the VD in IIS7 and select "Convert to Application" from the context menu.

The answer is in the comments;

"This error can be caused by a virtual directory not being configured as an application in IIS..."

You didn't say what version of IIS you are using, but this is an easy fix in just about all versions.  In IIS5 all you do is Create an application out of the directory, just right click on the directory and select Properties, when the dialog box comes up, just click Create Application.  Then try the page again.
