We have recently upgraded to Windows 2008 Server and switched from ISAPI Rewrite 2 to Helicon Ape.  We used the syntax converter and have successfully converted most of the rewrite rules to work in APE.  However, we are having problems getting this particular rule to work, which we originally posted here over two years ago (for original post see  Please find further details below:

RewriteRule ^/(?!(?:blog|images)(?:/|$))(\w+)_holiday_rentals/(\w+)/(\w+)(?:/(\w+))?(?:/(\w+)\:(\d+))?(?:/(\w+)\:(\d+))?(?:/(\w+)\:(\d+))?(?:/(\w+)\:(\w+))?(?:/(\w+))?(?:/(\w+))?(?:/(\w+))?(?:/(\w+))?(?:/(\w+))?(?:/(\w+))?(?:/(\w+))?(?:/(\w+))?(?:/(\w+))?(?:/(\w+))?(?:/(\w+))?(?:/(\w+))?(?:/(\w+))?(?:/(\w+))?(?:/(\w+))?(?:/(\w+))?(?:/(\w+))?/?$ /rentals_list.asp\?location=$1&region=$2&town=$3(?4&subregion2=$4:)(?5&$5=$6:)(?7&$7=$8:)(?9&$9=$$10:)(?11&$$11=$$12:)(?13&$$13=True:)(?14&$$14=True:)(?15&$$15=True:)(?16&$$16=True:)(?17&$$17=True:)(?18&$$18=True:)(?19&$$19=True:)(?20&$$20=True:)(?21&$$21=True:)(?22&$$22=True:)(?23&$$23=True:)(?24&$$24=True:)(?25&$$25=True:)(?26&$$26=True:)(?27&$$27=True:)(?28&$$28=True:)(?29&$$29=True:) [NC,L]

We have been using rewrite for a while now, it's a great product, we feel that we are almost there in getting this rule to work with APE, your help is much appreciated, many thanks!

Could you please provide me with rewrite.log records for the non-working request.
