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 when someone goes to 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....
