Display Images with IIS7 in Vista or Windows 2008

Posted by Peter Kellner on April 01, 2008 · 1 min read

So, this may seem simple, but for an hour I wrestled with displaying images on IIS7 with vista.  ASP.NET worked fine, but no static files, css, jpg's, gif's or anything.  Just unformatted text.

Turns out when I added the web server in vista, I forgot to check the Static Content checkbox under World Wide Web Services / Common Http Features.

Hope this finds you if you are having the same problem.
