I had my site on Windows 2003 Server working on IIS6.  We have recently sold the site and the guy wants to have this on Windows 2008 with IIS7.  I didn't think this was an issue so I went ahead and transferred all the files to him new server and everything is working accept 1 HUGE part.  The site has a tinyURL system...so when someone goes to mysite.com/123456 the site gets redirected to the global which then processes the no extension link.  However now with IIS7 this doesn't happen and the site goes to a white page.

It seems like IIS is blocking the execution of the global.asax.  I have been searching for the past 2 days with no results, please help!

Again everything works find on IIS6 just now that it is on II7 it isn't working....

NOTE: the site is in Classic mode not integrated....

Thanks!
