The following directory:

C:\Program Files\Helicon\HotlinkBlocker

Has the following permissions.  There is nothing set to deny:

Administrators - Allow (Full Control, Modify, Read and Execute, List Folder Content, Read, Write)

Creator Owner - Allow (Special Permissions)

Power Users - Allow (Modify, Read and Execute, List Folder Content, Read, Write)

System - Allow (Full Control, Modify, Read and Execute, List Folder Content, Read, Write)

OK, and what about C:\Program Files\Helicon\HotlinkBlocker\Filters permissions?
Maybe it is possible for me to get a terminal access to this server so I can check everything by myself?
And please tell me what exactly your system and OS configuration?

BTW, ISAPI_Rewrite can also help you with this. Actually it can do the same as HotlinkBlocker in REFERER protection mode. You may try ISAPI_Rewrite instead with the following rules:

RewriteCond Host: maps\.(domain\.com)
RewriteCond Referer: (?!http://(?:[^.]+\.)?\1).*
RewriteRule /uploads.*\.(?:zip|rar) http\://www.$1/ [I,O,R]

I have a Win Server 2003 R2 64bit OS.

What is your email address so I can send you the access information?

I entered what you gave me in the following file.  Does it require me to restart IIS?

C:\Program Files (x86)\Helicon\ISAPI_Rewrite\httpd.ini

Send it to the [email protected], I will pick it up.

Have you installed ISAPI_Rewrite using installation package? Then it has restarted IIS automatically and does not need it anymore. Also please make sure you have installed 64-bit version of ISAPI_Rewrite.
And please make sure your IIS server is not running in a 32-bit compatibility mode. This could be also a reason why HotlinkBlocker was not loaded.

I've sent you my remote information to that email address.  I do not know what version of ISAPI_Rewrite was installed.  Someone else installed it for us for use on one subdomain.  Thanks for your help.

I have checked your server. As I have suspected your IIS server is turned into 32-bit compatibility mode and in fact it means it is working in 32-bit mode, so 64-bit versions of filters cannot be used there. You can replace HotlinkBlocker.dll in the 64-bit program files folder by a version from the 32-bit installation and then try to enable it.
Or you can wait when we release new installation build that will do it automatically.

So I would simply move this file:

C:\Program Files\Helicon\HotlinkBlocker\HotlinkBlocker.dll

to this folder replacing the current file?

C:\Program Files (x86)\Helicon\HotlinkBlocker\HotlinkBlocker.dll

No, the other way. You need to move file from C:\Program Files (x86)\Helicon\HotlinkBlocker\HotlinkBlocker.dll and owerwrite file in the C:\Program Files\Helicon\HotlinkBlocker\HotlinkBlocker.dll

Doing that it's now working, but it wont even let a user download the files from our domain. =) It just redirects them to our homepage.  I currently have it disabled.

I see you are using "Automatic download start" script on your download pages. This could be a reason because in the case of JavaScript navigation browser doe not send referrer information, so referrer is empty. You can allow empty referrers by adding a @^$ pattern to the Referrer white list, but this will also allow hotlinkers to download it using same scheme (JavaScript). The only solution that can protect from hotlinkers in this case is utilizing a LINK protection method, but this will require you to change links to downloadable files to include signature template and also change JavaScript code to include signature. Please read "LINK protection type" and "Signing links manually" chapters in the HotlinkBlocker documentation.
