Last Modified: 2012-05-10
I have 2 web developmentts that wre done on IIS6, VS2008, ASP.NET 2.0 on WIndows XP professional.

I am now moving the development to a new Windows 7 Professional but still using ASP.NET 2.0 and VS2008. One web site works correctly, the other will not render CSS or images.

I have tried the following:
- ensure that Static Content module is installed
- check permissions
- uninstall and re-install

Any further suggestions.

I meant the URL in the address bar of the web browser, and the <link href=""> and <script src=""> HTML code
