WordPress Permalink Page Cannot Be Found IIS

You are problably here because will changing Permalinks settings in WordPress, your blog started responding with Page Cannot Be Found to any page other than your blog home page.  I experienced this same issue but on my server I had two wordpress blogs.  One was working and one was not.  So I know the issue should not be difficult to solve. 

I say not difficult, in my case it did take awhile, which is why I am adding this blog post.

In the end I needed to upgrade the version of php for the site that was not working from 4.4.6 to 5.1.6.

I hope this helps.
