IIS 7 - HTTP Error 404.0 - Not Found

I currently have a web page running on a XP Pro box using IIS 5.1. I am trying to convert over to a Win 7 box with IIS 7. I have copied the wwwroot folder along with the scripts, AdminScripts, iissamples, and mailroot folders and placed them under the inetpub folder ( probably not were they should go). When I open IE and type localhost it brings me to the main page but when I click on a link which should go to a different page I received an error "HTTP Error 404.0 - Not Found" I have attached a screen shot of the error. I am sure it is because it is looking in the wrong place for the file just don't know how to fix it?

I guess this is more a permission sissue, if the pathes are correct. They are shown in the error message.

I'm not sure if the path is really correct as in the error the physical path shows c:\inetpub\Scripts\scripts\Patchgen.exe  but the actual path is where the files are in C:\inetpub\Scripts\Patchgen.exe.

I did check out your link but I think that might be a little over my head, I did not write the page just trying to move it from one machine to another.

Your EXE is redirected to the C:\Inetpub\Scripts folder, and from there IIS follows our path "..\scripts\patgen.exe

So you may just crate the scripts subfolder or remove the "scripst" from your URL.

EXE files are a bit more restricted, this was the reason for the link, the first answer there i.e. points to web.config, where you can change the behaviour (allways mor save to use the GUI than to directly edit the web.config).

But if you can reach your target just by correcting the path, just do it.

Thanks Bembi, I have gotten past that error message and now I can go to the index page. however there is a link on that page the runs another page that just doesn't do anything when I click on it, no error no nothing. I will need to work with the person how designed this site to see if he can tell what is going on. Thanks for the above help.
