UrlRewriting.Net Module + IIS7 Equals Page.User == null:

I've used the UrlRewriting.Net module for a couple years now without any problems in Windows XP. I just recently upgraded my home PC to Windows 7 and started developing a new website.

The plan was to rewrite the URLs to something more meaningful using the UrlRewriting.Net module. Everything worked flawlessly in VS 2008, but when I tried running it through IIS7 it was a different story.

When I was accessing a page via its rewritten URL I could no longer access Page.User; it kept returning null. If I hit the page using it's .aspx extension, Page.User was correctly populated. I should also mention that I have a LoginView controller in my Master Page and it suffered from the same symptoms: When accessing via the rewritten url the AnonyousTemplate was always shown; When using .aspx extension it properly shows the LoggedInTemplate.

The solution was to add the below to web.config:
<modules runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests="true">

I found this solution thanks to Scott G who talks about using runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests for this purpose.
