ASP.Net Error: The WebResource.axd handler must be registered in the configuration to process this request.

Hi All,

I recently moved my asp.net sites to II7 from II6. I am using asp.net 3.5.  I am on a shared hosting platform so my options are limited.  I can however access the application pool for my sites.  

The only way that the site works is when I switch to Classic Mode instead of Integrated Mode.  I have tried switching the order of items in the web.config, taking handlers out of the system.web and adding them to other parts to no avail.  

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Jus

I am getting this error:

The WebResource.axd handler must be registered in the configuration to process this request.

Hi!
Did you try to add WebResource.axd in http handler?
<httpHandlers>
     <add path="WebResource.axd" verb="GET" type="System.Web.Handlers.AssemblyResourceLoader" validate="True" />
   ....

Note that integrated mode and classic mode use different config sections, look following thread: http://forums.iis.net/p/1147595/1861983.aspx

Hi Ivan,

Thank you for your response.  Yes I tried all of those solutions.  They didn't solve my problem.  I just changed the application pool settings from 32 bit to 64 bit and somehow that did the trick.  Thank you for your response.
