This is a symptom of Tiff Server being installed with a user who does
not have sufficient privileges, in order to resolve this follow the steps
- Open command prompt as administrator
- Type “regsvr32 “C:\inetput\wwwroot\tiffserever\bin\islicense.net.dll”
3. When browsing the following page http://server/tiffserver/test.aspx
you’re prompted with the following message:
This is usually caused when “tiffpilot.exe” has not been configured within the “ISAPI and CGI Restrictions” and/or the “CGI-exe” is not enabled in the “Handler Mappings” in IIS.
- If CGI has been enabled on the server, all that is required is to add “tiffpilot.exe” to the list of allowed executables under the “ISAPI and CGI Restrictions” section at the server level in IIS.
- If the “ISAPI and CGI Restrictions” icon does not appear, you need to ensure that CGI is enabled on the server. This involves adding the CGI component of IIS via “Turn Windows Features On or Off” or “Manager Server
Roles”, and then enabling of the CGI handler mapping.
