Blank page on ASP.NET 4.0 and IIS 7.5

I have an ASP.NET 4.0 webapp that runs fine locally on IIS 7.5 and Windows 7. But when I deploy it to a Windows Server 2008 R2 server and try to hit a page, all I get is blank. When I view source I get this:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<HTML><HEAD>
<META content="text/html; charset=windows-1252" http-equiv=Content-Type></HEAD>
<BODY></BODY></HTML>

Open in new window


I tried creating and hitting a simple html page in the root of the webapp. Same result: blank.
I tried hitting a nonexistent page, just shows blank--no 'page not found' error or similar.
At first I had a web.config error, and that error was displayed through the page. Once I fixed that config error, I just get the blank page.

Here's what I've already verified:
IIS 7.5 is installed and running
ASP.NET & static content server is installed
Friendly HTTP error messages are disabled, so I should see real error messages from server
custom errors are disabled via web.config
permissions are wide open on the folder containing the asp.net files

Any ideas?

ASP.NET 2.0 and ASP.NET 4.0 should be installed on the server. Also the application pool for website should be running with ASP.NET 2.

I'm running asp.net 4.0. Why would I want the app pool to run on 2.0 when it can run on 4.0?

I jerked around with this a bunch more and finally got it working. I think it was related to Windows Auth in IIS being disabled, and I needed it enabled. Very strange symptom for this: blank page.

Anyway, I think I may just request this be closed.
