LOGON_USER empty, authenticaiton errors if anonymous login permitted

P: 1
I have a classic ASP Web application that's been running on a Windows Server 2003 server with IIS 6.0 for several years. I have to move it to a Windows Server 2008 server with IIS 7.0. I've got it working, but the ServerVariable LOGON_USER doesnít get populated. This seems to be because I have enabled Anonymous Authentication and allowed Anonymous Authorization to the site. However, if I disable/deny either of those, then I get an Authentication or Authorization error when attempting to open it. I have to have the LOGON_USER variable for the program to work correctly, but no matter what combination of Authentication/Authorization I use, I get errored out if I don't allow anonymous login. Rather at a loss at this point as to what to try next. Any suggestions?
