I have an ASPNET 4-0 web IIS 7Service application that curently runs on 2003 R2 which displays a web page with no issues. I have recently moved the app to 2008 R2 platform.and the web page displays as though it is in design mode.

See image 1 the incorrect image  which is the version being displayed from the 2008 server. I have changed the Application Pool setting to 32 bit applications.

Image 2 is what should be displayed.
I am runing windows authentication
I have used the same PC to connect to both servers so the issue is not with IE 7.

Any suggestions please?
Thanks
Howard Image 1 Incorrect version Image 2 Correct version

That seems like a path issue to the style sheet, its also not finding an image... check you have the style sheet and images saved in the correct locations and you can access then directly using the same url path your using to access the website

Thank you for your very prompt reply.
However the problem is still not solved
I have checked the paths and all seems to be OK.
There is no difference between to 2 installs as they both use the same directory structure.
I have just copied the folder containing the 2003 working version to the 2008. server. It uses LocalHost for its path.

So it has to be something else.
Many thanks for your support.

Regards
Howard

I have just yesterday completed the move from windows 2003 to windows 2008 myself and ran into these same problems and many others besides, most were fixed by making sure folder permisions were correct, if you copied the folders including the structure from one server to the other the permissions wouldnt have copied over.

check your permissions making sure your applicationpool name has permision to access the folders that contain your images and style sheets

The application Pool name is a user, when setting permissions you will see the application pool name as one of the choices
