Problem accessing Dashboard

I have recently installed a version of vanilla forum onto an IIS Server. I was experiencing problems navigating to any page other than the index giving 404 errors. I have therefore added an additional URL Rewrite rule with the following:

Pattern: ^(.*)$
Conditions: {REQUEST_FILENAME} - Is Not a Directory - N/A
{REQUEST_FILENAME} - Is Not a File - N/A

Rewrite URL: index.php?p={R:1}

This has allowed me to navigate to pages other than the index except for the dashboard pages. All of these pages still give a 404 error. Can anyone suggest an additional URL Rewrite rule needed to allow me to access the dashboard?

    Please read the tutorial called "about error 404 "

    Hi vrijvlinder,

    That tutorial covers .htaccess. As mentioned above I'm using an IIS Environment with a web.config using the URL Rewrite IIS Module.

    I also have a missing image/not found for the RSS Icon to the left of each discussion board.

    I notice that the URL rewrite I have already got working converts...




    Can someone tell me the similar unconverted url for the dashboard please?
