HTTP Error 404.17 – Not Found – Static File Handler in IIS7

Another problem with another simple tweak 🙂

Migrating another website from IIS6 to IIS 7.5 and I had to manually create a unique Application Pool as it was using the Default Application Pool (not recommended), when I tested the website I had the error:

HTTP Error 404.17 – Not Found – Static File Handler

To fix this

  1. Open the properties of the new Application Pool, Advanced Settings
  2. (General), Enable 32-Bit Applications = True
  3. Managed Pipeline Mode = Classic

Test your website!
