  • What does your permalink options look like? Options > Permalinks.
    You may have some weird setting. Try adjusting the options there.

    my current setting is

    /index.php/%year%/%postname%/
    If i remove index.php nothing seem to work.

    can anybody help me out please

    No, nobody can help you. IIS does not do the sort of things needed to do permalinks. The index.php trick is a workaround, but the fault is not with WordPress, it’s with IIS.

    Specifically, IIS does not do .htaccess or mod_rewrite.

    Switch to Linux hosting and Apache like the rest of the world. IIS and Windows hosting sucks.

    but i have heard there are a number of solutions for IIS like the 404 custom redirect, but sadly i tried it and its not working for me.

    That attitude sucks….
