I am sitting with a problem for which I don't have answers anymore.
I have a Flashbanner which consumes a xml file (settings.xml) which we statically placed on the server from which the banner got its data to show. Now we need this xml file to be dynamic so I have written a HttpHandler to serve the file.
The HttpHandler works great and I can get the resulting xml when I debug (using asp.net dev server). As soon as I deploy the solution to IIS and navigate to the settings.xml file (which is actually the HttpHandler), I get a 404 - Page not Found.
I came across this blog post from Scott Hanselman, but it still does not work. I am working on a Win 7 box (IIS7.5) and the solution will ultimately be deployed to a IIS6 box.
I do not have control over the name of the datafile. I have to call it settings.xml.
Below is how I defined the handler in the web.config (I removed the other definitions to remove clutter)
<add verb="GET" path="settings.xml" type="WirelessG.Convergence.Core.Web.HttpHandlers.BannerHandler, WirelessG.Convergence.Core"/>
