IIS, SES URLs, and "Check for file existence..."

This post is more than 2 years old.

So, a user reported a problem in the latest version of the BlogCFC beta. The SES URLs kept returning a 404 error. Turns out, he was running IIS6 with the "Check for file existence" flag turned on.

Either way - does anyone know a work-around for this that does NOT involve using ISAPIRewrite? (Or using the 404 template.)
