I have followed the steps, created local copies of System.Web.Abstractions, Mvc & Routing as I don't believe my shared hosting provider ( has Mvc loaded yet. I also made Default.aspx my default page but I still get a 404 error on "/Wizard/Step". One thing that my provider does have me do is update the app to be 2.0 but they do state that they support 3.5 applications ( so I'm at a loss for what else to try.

Any help is appreciated...

It sounds like the the default.aspx page is pointing correctly to the HomeController which is redirecting you to the Wizard.  This means that your UrlRoutingModule in your web.config is not getting picked up.  BlogSvc runs best on IIS7 in integrated mode.  If you run in IIS7 classic mode or IIS6 then you'll need to explore your options:

Thanks for the tip but it sounds like they won't be supporting IIS7 anytime soon so do you have a hosting provider that you would recommend?

I'm going to try Go Daddy's Grid Service, it says IIS7. Will let you know...
