Url Routing in IIS 7 hosting environment : ASP.NET

Posted on 2011-02-25

Last Modified: 2013-12-14

I am trying to implement ASP.NET URL routing using the System.Web.Routing. And this seems to work fine on my localhost however when I go live I am getting an IIS 7's 404 error (File not found). FYI the hosting uses Windows Server 2008 IIS7 and It has .NET Framework 3.5 SP1

I think this is making some difference in handling the routing mechanism. But I am not able to figure out whats exactly happening.

In Web.Config HttpModules  i have added the below setting

 <add name="UrlRoutingModule" type="System.Web.Routing.UrlRoutingModule, System.Web.Routing, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35"/>

Can anybody suggest how to resolve this.

In the application's Web.config file, add the ASP.NET routing assembly to the assemblies element, as shown in the following example:

<add assembly="System.Web.Routing, Version=,

If the application runs under IIS 6.0 or IIS 7.0 Classic mode, add the UrlRoutingModule class to the httpModules element, as shown in the following example:

  <add name="UrlRoutingModule"
If the application runs under IIS 7.0 Integrated mode, add the UrlRoutingModule class to the modules element, as shown in the following example:

    <remove name="UrlRoutingModule" />
    <add name="UrlRoutingModule"
If the application runs under IIS 7.0 Integrated mode, add the UrlRoutingHandler class to the handlers element as shown in the following example:

    <add name="UrlRoutingHandler"
               System.Web, Version=,
               PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a" />
