    Hi Everyone,

    We recently replaced an old NT server with a new Windows 2003 server for our manufacturing floor. This server provides an Intranet which serves up drawings, specifications, etc. using IIS. All of these drawings are stored in various folders to which we allow directory browsing. However, as you probably already know, Windows XP, VISTA and 2003 server changed the default sort order for viewing files in Explorer. I've found many articles on how to change it back to the old way that prior versions of Windows used, but they've not proven effective for directory browsing within IIS. The steps we've taken ARE effective while browsing as a local user on the Windows 2003 Server desktop, but within IIS, when navigating the folder structure using an Internet browser, they are still unchanged!! I'm not sure if we have to log into the server as the IUSR_machinename account and change the registry as that user. I didn't think you can actually sign in on that account directly. Maybe someone here has addressed this very issue????

    I've already been through articles such as the one available here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/319827

    Thanks,

    Perplexed!

    It appears from this thread - IIS Directory Browsing that you can not easily do this with IIS 6.0 (the version in Windows 2003).
