ClickOnce / IIS Issue : Could not download '...dll.deploy' from http://www...

If I stop the new site and start the old site, it all works.

After looking through all the options, I have been unable to locate the setting that is causing this problem.

Once promising option is the Anonymous access.  However, I wasn't able to find the switch in IIS for it.

When you publish to a remote server that has "Anonymous Access" turned off, you will receive the following warning:

The MIME Types for both the old and new sites are exactly the same.  I double checked the count and individual items.

The issue was Execute permissions in Handler Mappings.  I disabled the option and all worked successfully.
