The AllowPathInfoForScriptMappings property indicates whether the PATH_INFO IIS Server Variables will contain full path information ("/vdir/myisapi.dll/zip") or partial path information ("/zip").
This property is false (full path) by default on the IIS server because ISAPI applications use the PATH_TRANSLATED IIS Server Variables to locate the file being requested. PATH_TRANSLATED is derived from PATH_INFO.
This property can be set to true if your site or server contains only CGI content. ISAPI applications such as ASP will not work when this property is set to true because AllowPathInfoForScriptMappings affects all handlers for the node at which it is configured, not just CGI.
This property does not affect the SCRIPT_TRANSLATED server variable on IIS 6.0.
IIS 6.0 is the last version of IIS that will support this property because new properties will take its place.
Client: Requires Windows XP Professional, Windows 2000 Professional, or Windows NT Workstation 4.0.
