We had the same error on a brand new server.

The reason was not the default IIS security policy, stored in applicationHost.config, as suggested by the other answer (although we checked that). The reason was that we installed IIS without support for ASP.NET (an ASP.NET 4.5 role)!

When we installed the missing support for ASP.NET, our application just started with no changes in configuration at all.

Conclusion:

Double check that you have ASP.NET role installed along with IIS if you get this error.


To install the ASP.NET role in Windows Server:

  1. Open the add roles and features wizard
  2. Check the ASP.NET [your_version] entry under Web Server (IIS) -> Web Server -> Application Development

To install the ASP.NET role in a Windows client:

  1. Open Turn Windows features on or off wizard
  2. Check the ASP.NET [your_version] entry under Internet Information Services -> World Wide Web Services -> Application Development Features

Well, it tells you what is wrong. The system.webServer/Handlers section has been locked somewhere else, meaning that you can not override it in the web.config file at the current level (probably the web site).

Either remove:

<handlers>
   <remove name="ExtensionlessUrlHandler-ISAPI-4.0_32bit" />
   <remove name="ExtensionlessUrlHandler-ISAPI-4.0_64bit" />
   <remove name="ExtensionlessUrlHandler-Integrated-4.0" />
   <add name="ExtensionlessUrlHandler-ISAPI-4.0_32bit" path="*." verb="GET,HEAD,POST,DEBUG,PUT,DELETE,PATCH,OPTIONS" modules="IsapiModule" scriptProcessor="%windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\aspnet_isapi.dll" preCondition="classicMode,runtimeVersionv4.0,bitness32" responseBufferLimit="0" />
   <add name="ExtensionlessUrlHandler-ISAPI-4.0_64bit" path="*." verb="GET,HEAD,POST,DEBUG,PUT,DELETE,PATCH,OPTIONS" modules="IsapiModule" scriptProcessor="%windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\aspnet_isapi.dll" preCondition="classicMode,runtimeVersionv4.0,bitness64" responseBufferLimit="0" />
   <add name="ExtensionlessUrlHandler-Integrated-4.0" path="*." verb="GET,HEAD,POST,DEBUG,PUT,DELETE,PATCH,OPTIONS" type="System.Web.Handlers.TransferRequestHandler" preCondition="integratedMode,runtimeVersionv4.0" />
</handlers>

from your web.config file

Or find out where it has been locked and change it.
It is probably locked in the applicationHost.config file. It can be found here: %windir%\system32\inetsrv\config\. Open it with a text editor and look for a line like

<section name="handlers" overrideModeDefault="Deny" />

Change the overrideModeDefault attribute to Allow


Alternatively, you can use appcmd.exe to unlock the section for a specific site or application, like this:

appcmd.exe unlock config "WebSiteName/app" -section:system.webServer/Handlers

Where "WebSiteName" is the name of the web site and "/app" is the path to your application. To unlock it for the entire web site:

appcmd.exe unlock config "WebSiteName" -section:system.webServer/Handlers
