IIS Error 500.19 when web.config is fine

This article affects you if IIS is showing an HTTP 500.19 error with Error Code 0x8007000d, but your web.config file looks well formed. A special indicator is that the ‘Config source’ section just says: -1: 0:.


This is probably happening because your web.config makes use of an extension which is not installed. Commonly this is URL Rewrite. You can either delete the config values for each extension until your site is accessible, or install the extensions.
