    Install on server based IIS - nothing happens


    It's probably me but having setup server 2012 R2 and IIS .NET 4.7.2 under hyper-v (the same platform as my hosting provides), I copied the latest version 8.5.3 , extracted the ZIP, created a new web site in IIS ...etc

    Browse to the website and up comes an image of a pair of hands and nothing else??? What is supposed to happen next?

    Do the following entities have modify permissions to the web root?

    • IUSR
    • IIS apppool\App Pool Name

    Hi Matt.

    Yes the permissions were all OK. IUSR IIS_IUSRS are (RO) and the application pool runs under the NETWORK SERVICE and that has MODIFY control to the root web.

    I think it may be some weird browser cache issue, because by chance I tried it under Internet Explorer on the server and I got the Dialog Box. Tried under Edge on the client and that worked as well.

    So I'm off an running....
