SqlXml and IIS 6.0/ Windows Server 2003
is a known problem with pre sp2 of SqlXml WR3 when running with IIS 6.0 (Windows Server
2003). Basically, SqlXml virtual directories
do not work properly when using the “Configure IIS Support” tool to set up SqlXml
virtual directories on a box running IIS 6.0. Here are the steps for configuring
Open up the IIS Manager MMC, add a new Web Service Extensions
named SQLXML, pointing to [C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\Ole DB\sqlis3.dll]
(ignore the brackets)
Start the "Configure IIS Support" mmc snap-in that is in the SQLXML 3.0 program
Add a Virtual Directory, configuring it appropriately. Save everything and then close
back to the IIS Manager, locate and select the newly added VDIR (you may have
to refresh), right-mouse select Properties, press the configuration button, and select
the sqlis3.dll mapping in the "Wildcard application maps" list. Press the Edit button.
5 . Wrap
the complete path in the 'Executable' control in double-quotes.
the "Verify that file exists" option.
Press Ok and close all modal dialogs.
this is fixed in SqlXml Wr3 sp2 for new virtual directories, that is the manual configuration
is not required. However, if you upgrade to SqlXml Wr3 sp2 you will need
to fix existing virtual directories manually.
