Issue

When using IIS6 in Windows Server 2003 with ASP .NET 1.1+ enabled then all requests going through to dispatcher for URLs under /bin directory return 404 Not Found.

Cause

ASP.NET 1.1 and 2.0 block access to the /bin directory [1].

Resolution

To disable /bin filtering

  1. Go to Start => Run...
  2. Browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\ASP.NET\
  3. Add a DWORD Value named StopBinFiltering and set the value to 1
