Carousel Does Not Load when Logged in with Usernames that Contain Periods

Applies to

  • Carousel 7.0.8+ 


  • Server unavailable due to 404 error code when accessing Carousel


The IIS web server is optimizing the request to use the static file handler because the user's account details are accessed at CarouselAPI/users/<username>. In this case the username contains a period which IIS inferst to mean the request is for a static file such as an image.


  1. Locate the API Web.config located in C:\TRMS\Web\CarouselAPI\Web.config or D:\TRMS\Web\CarouselAPI\Web.config.
  2. Find the <modules> element located under the <system.webServer> element (approx. line  number 74)
  3. Change <modules> to be <modules runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests="true">
  4. Save the Web.config
