WMS and MapGuide Enterprise 2007 problem

I got MapGuide Enterprise 2007 installed and running on my development box
yesterday (XP Pro and IIS 5, .NET web extensions) and only ran into a couple
of snags.  I am still re-configuring everything to work with the new version
and the biggest problem I have run into is WMS requests not working.
Whenever a standard WMS request is made (such as
-87.69,43.815&width=500&height=500&format=image/png) I am prompted with a
browser File Download dialog to download mapagent.fcgi.  Actually, the same
thing happens with a non-WMS MapGuide GetMap request.  Thanks to Thomas
Tuerke for providing the HTML page to test this stuff a few days ago.

WMS appears to be configured in Admin and I changed the default server name
of localhost:8008 to localhost (by the way, Autodesk, saving WMS parameters
from Admin does not work in IE 7 beta, I had to use Firefox).  Also, the
layers are properly exposed to WMS via Studio.  The only difference I can
see between this configuration and my older MGOS install on my production
server is that the WMS server name still says (provide your server name),
but it still works.  I am able to successfully get WMS capabilities via
VICE=WMS&FORMAT=text/xml and everything looks fine there.  This problem
almost looks like a mime type issue, but I am able to make the same calls to
my older system and it returns an image.

So, any ideas why the request is not returning an image?
