How do I configure IIS7 for .cshtml pages

Hello,

We're looking at using WebMatrix to develop a new website using the Razor syntax. I'm trying to get all the pieces in place and familiarize myself with everything before we start the project. I've successfully written an app on a developer pc, and set up our IIS so that we can use WebDeploy to push the code from the deleveloper pc to the Server. When I try to run the app, which works perfectly on the developer station, the IIS server returns a 404.3 error indicating that the default.cshtml cannot be served.

I have verified that the .dll for the project were correctly deployed to inetpub/wwwroot/bin directory on the server.
I have also added to the web.config, based on another post, a system.web section.
I have verified that .Net Framework 4 Client Profile, Extended are installed on the Server

Thanks

If you only have the .Net Framework 4 Client Profile then you will not have ASP.NET so you will be missing everything required to run ASP.NET 4.0

Which is why your handler mapping is missing.

The .NET Framework 4 Client Profile is a subset of the .NET Framework 4 that is optimized for client applications.

Features Not Included in the .NET Framework Client Profile
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The .NET Framework 4 Client Profile does not include the following features. You must install the .NET Framework 4 to use these features in your application:

ASP.NET

Advanced Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) functionality

.NET Framework Data Provider for Oracle

MSBuild for compiling

From

.NET Framework Client Profile
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc656912.aspx

I would recommend uninstalling the .NET Framework Client Profile, and then installing the full version of the .NET Framework Version 4.0 and then trying your application again.

Verify your handler mappings include the proper mapping for .cshtml. (Select the website and click "Handler Mappings")

I did check and there isn't a handler listed. Any idea of a handler to add. I can't find one listed.

Thanks wolfman007
That was it. I can't believe I missed that. We've been messing with the server so much, I didn't even think to check that.
One other thing that I had to do after installing .Net4 was to make sure that the website was using the application pool for .Net4. Mine wasn't and I received a 404.17 error when i tried to access it after installing the .Net4 framework.
Also, to save some headaches for anyone else who is trying WebMatrix, our IIS is behind a firewall and after several attempts at using FTPS to publish to it, I ended up using WebDeploy which requires that the WebManagementService be installed and running on the IIS server.
