[mapserver-users] Mapserver CGI and IIS 6 or 7

The instructions for getting IIS and Mapserver CGi seem dated as they do not
seem to detail how to get this done in full. I have tried the steps to no
avail. Only by reaching the farthest of pages in Google did I finally figure
out that you have to add an entry into the Web Service Extensions section of
IIS and point it to mapserv.exe. I am able to do this but still I can not
generate a map or even an error, just a blank page as if I am generally not
I do have scripts and executables enabled for the entire web folder which I
know is unsafe but I am just trying to rule out possibilities.
Of note: If I allow all unknown CGI extensions, I DO generate the error. My
question is for starters, is there an up-to-date set of instructions for
doing this and if so where may I locate them. If not, what other Web Service
Extensions must I allow in order to get this to function? I am pretty
positive the last key is in enabling the correct Web Service Extensions but
I do not want to just brutishly add every one that I have in my Bin folder.
Any help is, as always, highly appreciated.
