I can't believe how much trouble I am having with this.  I am on shared Windows hosting and cannot use .htaccess to do a 301 redirect.  My hosting provider tells me they have ISAPI_Rewrite installed and that I can use that instead.  He says I should create a .irwaccess file instead of .htaccess.

All I want to do is have page.html in my root folder redirected to /subfolder/page.php.  I have followed all the examples I can find, both on this forum and on other sites, and here is what I now have in the .irwaccess file (this the entire contents):

RewriteEngine on
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^page\.htm$ [NC,L]

What am I doing wrong?  I have been trolling this forum for an hour, see lots of similar questions, but am obviously missing something.

Your rule looks okay! (You may need to comment RewriteBase, as a fact)
So the thing i'm most concerned about is that how your provider has managed to use .irwaccess.

For your provider the necessary entry to make in httpd.conf is:

AccessFileName .irwaccess
