I am seeing no-cache http header on every page served by my IIS 8.5 server (Windows 2012 R2)

I have a web site hosted on Server2012 R2 and every page served has an HTTP Response header of "no-cache". I have set the "Common http response headers" in IIS to expire after 7 days and added a "Cache-Control max-age = 604800" NV pair to the http response headers, but I still see "no-cache" on every page.
Any clues ?

There are apparently some issues with this going back to IIS 7 according to various commenters.

Have you looked at these resources already?

There is a chance that the response headers are being set in code.  Can you post a screen shot of your HTTP Response Header config for your site?

I would search thru a few files in the web site and check for something like the following:

EE email requested stale question closure.  Two solutions proposed, no response.  Worth keeping in the archives for future reference.
