I have been using ISAPI rewrite version 2 on one of my domain names.  Due to some hosting issues, I am moving to another provider and they have version 3 on the servers.

Below is a few lines that I have in the httpd.ini file.  Can someone perhaps help with updating this to version 3 (for Helicon ISAPI Rewrite)?
[ISAPI_Rewrite]

# 3600 = 1 hour
CacheClockRate 3600

RepeatLimit 32

# Block external access to the httpd.ini and httpd.parse.errors files
RewriteRule /httpd(?:\.ini|\.parse\.errors).* / [F,I,O]
# Block external access to the Helper ISAPI Extension
RewriteRule .*\.isrwhlp / [F,I,O]

#Please do not delete or modify this file as your subdomain might not working properly 
RewriteCond Host: (?!www\.)([^.]+)\..+\..+ 
RewriteRule (.*) /$1$2 [I,L] 

RewriteRule ^/blog/(.*) /permalink.asp?id=$1 [I,R]
RewriteRule /2011/02/address-verification-service-fee /permalink.asp?id=284
RewriteRule /sitemap/merchant-accounts /sitemap/merchant-accounts.asp
RewriteRule /sitemap/merchant-account-terminology /sitemap/merchant-account-terminology.asp

I contacted Helicon.  it took a lot of hard work but they are finally helping my new provider.  I have a 4 four treatment at the oncologist so hopefully they will have it done.

You can close the question or I can try to post what Helicon did

Helicon was unable to help me unfortunately.  The server had IISPassword on it and was not able to use .htaccess - the suggested alternative was to use something else, but the hosting company wanted me to use just htaccess (without the period).

I was able to locate a Helicon ISAPI Rewrite Syntax Converter actually from somewhere on there website.  I wrote a little about how to use the program - since I posted on their forums and did not receive a reply either.  

But if you look at my original code and look at the new code, you will see there is not that much difference.
ISAPI_RewriteSyntaxConverter C:\folder\httpd.ini C:\folder\.htaccess

#  Block external access to the httpd.ini and httpd.parse.errors files
RewriteRule ^/httpd(?:\.ini|\.parse\.errors).*$ / [NC,F,O]
#  Block external access to the Helper ISAPI Extension
RewriteRule ^.*\.isrwhlp$ / [NC,F,O]

# Please do not delete or modify this file as your subdomain might not working properly 
RewriteCond %{HTTP:Host} ^(?!www\.)([^.]+)\..+\..+$
RewriteRule (.*) /%1$1 [NC,L]

RewriteRule ^/blog/(.*)$ /permalink.asp?id=$1 [NC,R=302]
RewriteRule ^/2011/02/address-verification-service-fee$ /permalink.asp?id=284
RewriteRule ^/sitemap/merchant-accounts$ /sitemap/merchant-accounts.asp
RewriteRule ^/sitemap/merchant-account-terminology$ /sitemap/merchant-account-terminology.asp
