IIS 403 issue with image files

September 1, 2007

I spent a good amount of time last night trying to figure out why my IIS7 (Windows Vista) would not serve a few new images that I had just added to my images folder. As soon as an image was requested it would throw up a login box (Windows authentication was enabled), which led me to believe it was an issue with the ACL. So i go and reset the ACL – but no luck! Finally figure out that the images had the property “encrypt contents to secure data” turned on – thats what was killing me. Here is a another post that I ran into that might be of help.
