Handler "JWildCardHandler" has a bad module "IsapiModule" in its module list

Dec 28, 2013 8:28 AM

I get this Internal Server Error (500.21) after installing the 32 bit version of Cold Fusion on a Windows 7 Pro machine (32 bit version).  I read the posts and unchecked the IIS version 6 backward compatibility on my IIS configuration, and ran the upgrade to Version 9.0.1, but that didnt fix the problem.  Any suggestions as to what I should do next?

    if you have removed IIS 6 compatibility mode from IIS features then you also need to rebuild the connectors.

    Us ethe Web Config tool to remove all connectors, and then re-add them.

    If you have any anti-virus or malware software installed, try turniong it off in case it is the cause of the block.

    Also you should check the web config tool settings (in same folder) and make sur ethe paths are correct. If you have had multiple versions of CF installed, it may be trying to conect to previous version.

     

    also try the suggestion in this article: http://www.michaels.me.uk/post.cfm/cfmx7-installation-and-web-server-c onfiguration-tool-fails-with-jndi-ports-blocked

     

    JRUN service is the ColdFusion application server, you will see JRUN running if you bring up the task manager.

     

     

    I also noticed that you mentioned "ColdFusion 4", was this a typo ?

    Adding to Russ's suggestion, please ensure that, you are running the webserver config tool as Administrator.

    it may be that you do not have some required IIS component installed.

    The easiest way to verify this is to use Microsoft Web Platform Installer and just install the "IIS recommended configuration"

    Make sure you

    Hi fschneider,

     

    Can you let us know, the version of ColdFusion you are using and the IIS version (seems like IIS7, from your post)

    Thanks again!  So, I ran that netstat -an command and realized that I had the VPN running...so I shut that off as well as the firewall and re-installed CF.   Still no success, although at least now when I run the webconfig tool (as administrator as Anit has said) it actually shows up with the jrun host: as local host...and shows IIS as the web server, but the OK button doesn't appear - instead a command prompt winto shows up and says "Enabling IIS7 optional packages...it will take 2 to 5 minutes..."  but sits there and doesn't do anything for way more than 5 minutes.

    And also, the error points to some configuration miss at IIS end.

     

    Regards,
