IIS Returns CF file rather than handing request to CF

Am running IIS on a Windows 2016 server and ran an install of Coldfusion 2018(now on update 5).  It installed, I ran wsconfig to configure the single website on this server, but IIS doesn't appear to be handing the request off to CF.  What I'm getting instead is a question on how to handle the test.cfm file.

In the IIS UI, I have a cfmhandler mapping going to the isapimodule, and an ISAPI filter entry pointing to the correct subfolder in the CF installation (..config\wsconfig\1\isapi_redirect.dll).  

I've installed CF a number of times before including using the lockdown guide.  Haven't seen this before though.  

Any suggestions?
