IIS ISAPI Functionality

Updated: January 20, 2010

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

Internet Information Services (IIS) ISAPI (Internet Server Application Programming Interface) extensions and filters can extend and modify the request-processing capabilities of IIS. ISAPI filters require a long time to be written, offer no native support for session handling, and can be cumbersome to maintain. IIS 6.0 and IIS 7.0 run ISAPI applications in isolation to enhance server stability. While ISAPI filters can still be used in IIS 7.0, it is easier for developers to add managed or native modules that integrate into IIS 7.0’s new modular architecture.
