The following required field is missing from the launch file: <jnlp>

Hello to all,

I have created a Java desktop application that runs successfully. I am now attempting to run this application via my browser using Java Web Start. From windows explore I can double_click the jnlp file and the application runs successfully. From windows explore I can double-click the html file that has a href to the jnlp file and the application runs successfully. When I attempt to run the application from my browser using address "http://localhost/bpjws" I recieve the message "The following required field is missing from the launch file: <jnlp>".

Configuration: WindowsXP SP3, JRE7, IIS7.5 Express, IE8

I have assigned the file type (jnlp) in both the web site and the Windows folder types. The application is not downloaded from a WEB Server it resides on localhost
jnlp.txt
bp.html

"file://localhost/bpjws" does not work, but file://(ipaddress)/bpjws does display the contents of the folder that the jnlp files resides. I can then double click the jnlp file and the application will execute.
