    I have installed Sitefinity 4.0 Trial and have an issue that I am not sure is caused by Trial version, is a bug or some setting that I am missing. Please find bellow details my issue

     - I have installed the sitefinity on 2 machines Win 2008 64 Bit IIS 7.5  and  Win 2003 32 Bit SP 2 with IIS 6. Both use same license Standard Trial and both connect to same database on our SQL server.

    - On the both machines the site is configured in IIS to lets say http://localhost:5555 and points to same physical path C:\Proj\Test.  

    The problem I am facing is that when I log in to Administration http://localhost:5555/sitefinity and upload images to new album or default album those are displayed only on the Win 2008 machine. On Win 2003 the images are not displayed, thumbails appear but no image on http://localhost:5555/sitefinity/Content/Images

    I checked the MimeTypes, Configuration for different extension on IIS and what ever else I could compare from looking between site settings under IIS on those 2 machines but nothing.

     One more thing maybe it helps, when I load the admin http://localhost:5555/sitefinity/Content/Images in Chrome and and inspect element for page loaded from WIN 2003 I see errors "Failed to load resource:the server responded with a status of 404 (not found)" and path to image like http://localhost:5555/Sitefinity/Content/Images/aigheaderimages/2011/01/21/topnav_div.gif.tmb?Status=Master  (aigheaderimages  in link is the name of an album creatd)

    Strange thing is that if on Win 2003 I create a new Virtual directory called TestVD, under the current site, that will point to same physical path C:\Proj\Test when I access from Win 2003 the path http://localhost:5555/TestVD/sitefinity the images from album are displayed correctly on this machine too. Is there anything that I can set or change?

    I am having exactly the same issue...
    Basically its giving a 404 not found error massage while trying to get the image from the folder or the album.
    Environment: Windows 2003, IIS 6, .NET 4.0, Sitefinity_4.0.1141 (Latest build)
    Looks like you are using 2.0. I followed the solution as you did and for me it did not work.

    The html was
    <img alt="" sfref="[images]a85519d1-938f-431a-aea4-4e6cf8282bae" src="/CMS/images/default-album/2011/02/08/sbe_banner.gif" />

    Hi Bhavani Gollu,

    I managed to reproduce the problem you are reporting under windows 2003 and IIS 6.0 only before configuring wildcard application mapping as described at this article:

    http://www.sitefinity.com/4.0/documentation/installation-and-administration-guide/installing-sitefinity/configuring-the-iis-to-host-sitefinity-projects.aspx

    After I followed all steps outlined in the article above the images showed correctly.

    Please take a look at this article and verify that you have followed the exact steps. Also run your IIS as an Administrator.


    All the best,
    Milena

    Thanks telerik.
    Specifically Configuring the IIS to host Sitefinity projects was very very helpful.
