How to enable and disable ISAPI extensions and CGI applications in IIS 6.0

Summary

This step-by-step article describes how to enable and disable Internet Server Application Programming Interface (ISAPI) extensions and Common Gateway Interface (CGI) applications in Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0.

By using the Iisext.vbs command line script, which is located in the Sysvol\System32 (default is Windows\System32) directory, a server administrator can enable and disable files that are specified in the Web Service Extension Restriction List (WebSvcExtRestrictionList). These files can be either ISAPI extensions or CGI applications.

Note Before you can enable or disable a Web service extension, you must add it to the Web Service Extension Restriction List.
