    When testing the ASP.NET AJAX component, I ran into a serieus issue. When using the component and testing it on a local machine, everything works great, but when testing it on a Windows 2008 IIS7 machine, the "resonse.redirect" methode no longer works.
    After a long search, I found out that the problem starts from the moment you apply the function "Convert to Telerik website" and de dll files are attached to the solution and de "web.config" file is modified. Even when you don't use any of the Telerik functions, the function no longer works.

    After a long search I stumbled upon some information telling people that a bug in Windows 2008 disables the function when Ajax is used. This bug is almost 4 years old and I can't seem to find any bug fix for win 2008.

    I've tried almost any recommended workaround, without any luck.

    Things I've tried:
    - Replaced the "response.redirect" methode by  "RadAjaxManager1.Redirect" and  "RadAjaxPanel1.Redirect", without any luck.
    - Added "<add name="ScriptModule" preCondition="integratedMode" type="System.Web.Handlers.ScriptModule, System.Web.Extensions, Version=1.0.61025.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35"/>" to the web.config, no luck.
    - Added "ValidateRequest="false"" and "enableEventValidation="false" to the page directives, without any improvement.

    It's really frustrating to see that this 4 year old issue isn't solved by Microsoft yet.

    Does anyone have the same experience on Windows 2008? Does anyone have a solid fix for this problem?

    Thanx for any feedback...

    Hello John,

    The issue you are facing is strongly related to Microsoft. By releasing a new version of their product that could have dropped support for older versions. However, you could directly contact Microsoft and ask them.

    Kind regards,
