Running An MVC Application Through IIS Results In "Directory Listing Denied"

- 1 answer

I have an .Net MVC application which runs fine if I use the build in Visual Studio Webserver. If I use the projects property pages to switch to IIS as the webserver and create a virtual directory for my project, any request I send to the server results in a "Directory listing denied" failure.

Does anyone know a solution for this?

It's an issue with 'extensionless' urls prior to IIS7.

It needs either an ISAPI filter or duplicate routes in the routing table with a .mvc extension. Try ScottGu's blog at weblogs.asp.net.
