WebResource.axd error when editing and creating areas

  Asked By: Holly    Date: Aug 28    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1890

I receive the following error when editing and creating areas in SP
2003 on Windows 2003. This is a brand new install.
Any help is appreciated.
The WebResource.axd handler must be registered in the configuration to
process this request.

<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

<add path="WebResource.axd" verb="GET"
type="System.Web.Handlers.AssemblyResourceLoader" validate="True" />

I had this problem too. A work around is as follows:

You will need to get a copy of “WebResource.axd” and copy it to the _layouts directory which is can be found in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\60\Template\Layouts. You will also need to add the lines below into the HttpHandlers section in the Web.Config file that is in that directory also.

<add path="WebResource.axd" verb="GET" type="System.Web.Handlers.AssemblyResourceLoader" validate="True" />
