How to deploy ASP.NET MVC 3 on IIS 6?

- Install AspNetMVC3Setup.exe
- Make sure web site and application pool are both set the ASP.NET version to 4.0.30319
- Add "Wildcard application maps"

Steps to add "Wildcard application maps":
In property for the website, click the Home Directory tab.
Click the "Configuration..." button. In the "Mappings" tab, click "Insert..."
Next to the "Wildcard application maps" label In the textbox, type in "c:\windows\\framework\v4.0.30319\aspnet_isapi.dll"
Uncheck the box labeled "Verify that file exists" Click OK

This one is for earlier version of MVC, but idea is the same for Wildcard application maps
