Rock, Paper, Azure! Contest – White Screen or 404 Error While Running Local.

I registered for ROCKPAPERAZURE, downloaded the Bits, after installing the pre-reqs, click F5 and got a 404/blank page.

After some troubleshooting I found that install the following applications through the Microsoft Web Platform Installer, the issue was corrected.  I also verified this with Kevin D. Wolfe - as he had the same issue Рthanks Kevin:

  1. IIS 7 Recommended Configuration (Good to clean up IIS installs)
  2. Application Request Routing 2.5

Anyway happy Rock, Paper, Azure!, follow the link for more info or to compete.
