Running coldfusion on IIS 7.5 on windows 7 enterprise will not run coldfusion files.

You can encounter problems if IIS is not installed properly. Dale Fraser has written an excellent solution for this: http://dale.fraser.id.au/2008/05/coldfusion-8-vista-sp1-solution.html. In short you need to add a couple of iis features installed. Go to the control panel --> Programs and features --> click 'windows features on or off'. Install the features in the image below.

Brilliant. Googled this problem and came up with your page. Saved me no end of tyring to solve this. Cannot help think someone has failed to highlight this in installation notes, or perhaps it's another case of MS being less than helpful
