This reset class resets all the properties of an object to sensible defaults, as recommended by w3.org, the web standards body, so your pages look much more alike on different browsers. [More]
For the case when you return a string back from the database and you want it converted to an enum..this works well. In leue of this approach is often a large case statement which is just ugly. Give this a try and let me know how it goes for you. [More]
Are you running in IIS7 integrated mode?
Classic mode of IIS7 does not automatically map extensionless URLs to ASP.NET (much like IIS6).
Also make sure your Web.config <system.webServer> tag is configured correctly.
<system.webServer> <validation validateIntegratedModeConfiguration="false"/> <modules runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests="true"/></system.webServer>
On my workstation windows 7, 64 bit I had set my app pool to classic and added a "Wildcard Script Map" to C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\aspnet_isapi.dll (32bit dll). The end result was my web.confi webServer section looked like
<system.webServer> <validation validateIntegratedModeConfiguration="false" /> <modules runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests="true" /> <handlers> <add name="_wildcard 32" path="*" verb="*" modules="IsapiModule" scriptProcessor="C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\aspnet_isapi.dll" resourceType="Unspecified" requireAccess="None" preCondition="classicMode,runtimeVersionv4.0,bitness32" /> </handlers> </system.webServer>
