Did you follow the directions in step 6?

6.Configure IIS to enable replisapi.dll to execute.
In Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager, click Default Web Site.

In the center pane, click Handler Mappings.

In the Actions pane, click Add Module Mapping.

For Request Path, enter replisapi.dll.

From the Module drop-down list, select IsapiModule.

For Executable, enter <drive>:\Inetpub\SQLReplication\replisapi.dll.

For Name, enter Replisapi.

Click the Request Restrictions button, click the Access tab, and then click Execute.

Click OK to close the Request Restrictions dialog box, and then click OK again to close the Add Module Mapping dialog box. When you are prompted to allow the ISAPI extension, click Yes to add the extension.

Verify that Replisapi.dll is listed under the Enabled handler mappings. If it is in the Disabled list, right-click the Replisapi entry and then click Edit Feature Permissions. Check the Execute box, and then click OK.

Yes I have done this. Any idea what would cause it to try to download?

The only reason it would try to download would be if the ISAPI wasn't configured to be executable.  If the server isn't told to execute that file it will try to send it to the client.

Can you check the Request Restrictions for the Replisapi handler and verify that it is set to 'Execute' on the Access tab?
Will your db performance match your db growth?

In Percona’s white paper “Performance at Scale: Keeping Your Database on Its Toes,” we take a high-level approach to what you need to think about when planning for database scalability.

Sorry it took me so long to get back to you.  I just checked.  The request restrictions shows that it is set to execute.  Any other thoughts?

Not off the top of my head.  Can you post a copy of the web.config for the site?

Is your application pool running in 64 or 32 bit?

I changed to Bitness32. Now error code is 0x800700c1.
