When ever I click the Syndicate button on my Announcements Module I get a 404 Error stating the server can't find RSS.aspx. Funny thing  is I have a working website in which Syndicate works and I can't find RSS.aspx on that one either?  I was just going to copy RSS.aspx but I don't think it is going to be that easy.  Am I missing something?

did you enable site search in Host > Seach and Host > Scheduler?

These are the settings on those pages:

Are they correct?

I really need these announcements to work. Do you have any other suggestions?

Please check your installations web.config file for the following:

1. Inside <system.webServer> . . . . <handlers> . . . </handlers> the following node:

<add name="RSSHandler" path="RSS.aspx" verb="*" type="DotNetNuke.Services.Syndication.RssHandler, DotNetNuke" preCondition="integratedMode" />

2. Inside <system.Web> . . . <httpHandlers> . . . </httpHandlers> the following node:

<add verb="*" path="RSS.aspx" type="DotNetNuke.Services.Syndication.RssHandler, DotNetNuke" />

RSS.aspx does not actually exist as a file as its function is provided by the above referenced handlers. If you have recently upgraded the non-working site's application pool to ASP.Net 4.0 the problem may be that the first reference above is the following (note the difference in the preCondition attribute value):

<add name="RSSHandler" path="RSS.aspx" verb="*" type="DotNetNuke.Services.Syndication.RssHandler, DotNetNuke" preCondition="integratedMode,runtimeVersionv2.0" />

If that is the case, remove the above bold-faced text from ALL handler registrations within that same <Handlers> section.

If this does not solve the problem for you, please advise what version of DNN is installed, whether or not it is running under an ASP.Net 4.0 application pool and if possible what version of Windows/Windows server/IIS it is installed on.
