Adding Urlauth.dll as a New Web Service Extension

Updated: August 22, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1

If you want to use a Web service extension that is not in the default list of extensions, you must add the file to the list, and then enable the Web service extension.

You must be a member of the Administrators group on the local computer to perform the following procedure or procedures. As a security best practice, log on to your computer by using an account that is not in the Administrators group, and then use the runas command to run IIS Manager as an administrator. At a command prompt, type runas /user:Administrative_AccountName "mmc %systemroot%\system32\inetsrv\iis.msc".


To add Urlauth.dll as a new Web service extension
  1. In IIS Manager, expand the local computer, right-click the Web Service Extensions node, and then click Add a new Web service extension.

  2. In Extension Name, type the following text exactly as it appears below:

    URL Authorization

    and then click Add. If you do not type this text exactly as it appears, IIS URL authorization fails without sending a warning message.

  3. Click Browse on the Add file dialog box, browse to systemroot\system32\inetsrv, select urlauth.dll, click Open, and then click OK twice.

  4. Check Set extension status to Allowed, and then click OK.
