Running the website under Integrated Pipeline application pool in IIS 7.0

AspDotNetStorefront will not run under Integrated Pipeline mode in some environments.  You'll have to change the application pool to Classic to properly load the AspDotNetStoreFront Admin page.

Open up your IIS 7.0 and navigate to the virtual directory tab.  Under application setting section, go to application pool drop down list.  Make sure that you selected Classic instead of Integrated Pipeline/DefaultAppPool.
