URL Rewrite is a great free IIS 7.x and 8 extension. It's the technology used to generate clean URLs in Drupal on IIS and the rough equivalent of the mod_cgi module in Apache. In this webcast you'll see how to install URL Rewrite, how to create rules and rewrite maps and how to troubleshoot rewriting actions with Failed Request Tracing (FRT).
In case you might also want to try the demos in a virtual machine, just download your free copy of Windows Server trial edition and run it on your favorite virtualization software, on Windows, Mac or Linux.
