Allow access http handlers

Hi,

We have upgraded our webserver from Windows server 2003 to 2008 R2 and after that I got an error in one of the asp.net sites. Nothing has changed in the code or in the site file structure. This is the error message:

---
"I-Load exception: Unable to load resources.
Please ensure WebCoreModule HttpModule and HttpHandler are installed in the web.config file.
If you are using asp.net authentication please allow * access to "WebCoreModule.ashx" HttpHandler"
---

The handlers are installed correctly in the web.confin both in HttpModule and HttpHandler sections and nothing has changed there since it was running ok on my 2003 server.

I then went on to the second issue of allowing acces to the handler. I added this element outside the system.web element in the web.config:

 <location path="WebCoreModule.ashx">
        <system.web>
            <authorization>
                <allow users="*"/>
            </authorization>
        </system.web>
    </location>

Open in new window


But, I still get the error. Is there someone having an idea how to solve this I would be grateful.

Peter
