Which project did you download and deploy?  Did you deploy to a new web site or a virtual directory?   If a virtual directory, did you create an application for it in IIS admin?

Have you enabled wildcard mappings? By default IIS5-6 doesn't pass on requests without the .aspx extension.

I enabled wild card extension by placing .aspx now  it is working. Thank you for your suggestion.

As far as my testing goes, adding the wildcard extension is the only way to get MVC to work. Modifying the routing in global.asax.cs seems to break the application (routing), at least last time I tested by adding a news-archive and trying to create comments.
