Error after having configured IIS for CF 6.1


I have configured IIS 7 for CF 6.1 as per the following link:

But am still getting the following error:

Server Error in Application "DEFAULT WEB SITE"
Internet Information Services 7.5
Error Summary HTTP Error 404.17 - Not Found
The requested content appears to be script and will not be served by the static file handler.

Detailed Error Information Module StaticFileModule Notification ExecuteRequestHandler Handler StaticFile Error Code 0x80070032
Requested URL
Physical Path C:\inetpub\wwwroot\CFIDE\administrator\index.cfm
Logon Method Anonymous
Logon User Anonymous

Most likely causes:
•The request matched a wildcard mime map. The request is mapped to the static file handler. If there were different pre-conditions, the request will map to a different handler. Things you can try:
•If you want to serve this content as a static file, add an explicit MIME map.

What can I do to resolve this error?

It looks as though your .cfm mapping to jrun isn't in place. The tutorial isn't terribly clear about the mappings needed - there's a hint that .cfm needs to be added in one image (on page 7), but that's a little.. scant. Can you confirm what's in place in IIS's "Hander Mappings" section?

Also: CF 6 is positively ancient, I'd strongly recommend running a newer version. I believe 6 (and 7) no longer get security updates.
