Differences between IIS'es

Is there a document that lists the differences between IIS in Windows 2000 and IIS in Windows Server 2003? I am talking about gotcahs for people with asp pages written in Windows 2000 and now running them on Windows Server 2003.

For example, I now have a asp file with:

<!-- #include file= "../routines.asp" -->

that works perfectly fine in Windows 2000 and now in Windows Server 2003 it complains

The Include file '../routines.asp' cannot contain '..' to indicate the parent directory.

this is due to the tightened security in Windows Server 2003. You need to
tweak IIS metabase's 'AspEnableParen tPaths' setting to allow parent
referencing to be used:

Hi, I have an asp.net project that I've localised using the satellite dll method and when I build it, the relevant *.resources.dll's are put into the correct language\culture directories.

I have a team that is designing/building an n-tier (5 logical layer, 3 physical) WinForms application that will be deployed via ClickOnce. The backend will be using WCF for communication.

Thier reasoning for using IIS is because of the requirement...

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
