When you create two applications in Internet Information Services (IIS) 5.0, both with the same physical path, and map a custom error 500-100 for the first application to the URL of the second, IIS stops responding (hangs) during requests by the first application.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in Microsoft Windows 2000 Server.


This problem occurs under the following set of conditions:

  1. There must be a preprocessor (not a runtime or compilation) error in the error page.
  2. The error page must exist in an application with the custom error pointing to itself.
  3. The user must be invoking the error page explicitly.
