I don't know how different a WIN2000 install is from a WINNT install, but
here are the instructions I created for our team to install on WINNT.
They're based on the Gal Shacor's document, but call out only the things I
did that got it to work.  Maybe you can glean something from them that will
help you with your problem.


To configure the ISAPI Redirector: 

Start the Registry Editor and create a new key named: 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Apache Software Foundation\Jakarta Isapi

Add the following "String" values to the key: 

name: extension_uri, value: /jakarta/isapi_redirect.dll.
name: log_file, value: <tomcat_root>\logs\isapi.log
name: log_level, value: error (can be debug, info, error or emerg)
name: worker_file, value: <tomcat_root>\conf\
name: worker_mount_file, value: <tomcat_root>\conf\

Exit the Registry Editor. 

Make sure the following values are correctly set in 


Start the IIS Internet Service Manager console, and 
add a new virtual directory to your web site. The name 
of the virtual directory should be "jakarta", its physical 
path should be the directory "<tomcat_root>/bin/win32/i386", 
and it should be assigned the following permissions: 

   Allow Read access
   Allow Script access
   Allow Execute access (includes Script Access)

Using the IIS management console, add a new filter for 
your web site. Starting by displaying the Properties 
dialog for your web site.  Select the ISAPI Filters tab, 
and add a new filter as follows:  

   Name: jakarta
   Executable: <tomcat_root>\bin\win32\i386\isapi_redirect.dll

Stop and then re-start the IIS Admin Service.  Make sure 
that the jakarta filter is marked with a green up-pointing arrow.  

To test, start both the web server and Tomcat, then ask IIS 
to serve you the /examples context.  For example, ask for
http://localhost/examples/jsp/index.html and execute some 
of the JSP examples.
