Here is the issue I am having when running "Hangman" or a "Blog" examples.

They work fine when using wthttp connector. But, they cause an the following error when running them

as ISAPI in IIS 8 on both Windows 8.1 64bit or Windows Server 2012 64bit: "An unhandled exception occured in w3wp.exe [5064]".

On windows 8.1 I then see a "Visual Studio Just-in-time debugger" window. In Windows Server 2012 IIS 8 just crashes and

requires a restart. It is important to note that examples like "Hello" or "Dialog" works fine with ISAPI on IIS 8.

I gave 'write' permission to the IIS user account to write to the examples folder, so, can not figure out what is

the root cause. All other steps are properly done based on the Wt doc page at

Wt compiled to target 64bit platform on Windows 8.1 64bit using Visual Studio Express 2013 using Boost 1.56.

Also, IIS 8 can not even log this error in the error log file. I can only attach the Application Error from Windows Log:
