Deployment of R1 on Windows Server 2008


I have deployed a Episerver R1 version 5 site on a Windows Server 2008 (IIS 7,0), but get this error when I try to open the site in the browser:

 Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

The same files is working on XP and ISS 6.0. Hope somebody have some suggestion on how to come around this problem.

    Hi Robert,

    CMS R1 doesn't have support for IIS 7. However people have made it work. You could have a look at Enes blog on labs.

    Remember that running R1 on IIS 7 in production is not supported.
