IIS: Virtual Directory Name

After loosing more than one hour on a virtual directory named /VirtDirNam.com, I discovered that it IIS doesn't manage virtual directory names containing executable extensions such as .vbs, .com, .exe... (is it standard compliant ? )

In this case, the user will receive this error: 403.1 - Forbidden: Execute Access Forbidden

Microsoft documented properly here: Q275601.
