If you are a .Net developer or a network administrator like me than there might be a possibility that you may face the error –
“IIS 7.0 – HTTP Error 404.17 – Not Found – Static File Handler.”
Well, yesterday while configuring IIS on a local machine I got this error. And the outcome was it didn’t allow me to place or remove all the handlers. (Actually I was able to remove few handlers though)
Anyways, after 3 – 4 hours research and development, I came to know that IIS must be registered with a specific command from command prompt.
Here are the steps that you need to follow:
1. Login as Administrator or run command prompt as Administrator.
2. Enter and run the following command –
3. And the result was there, the error was gone.
Hope you find this information usefull.
