Properly serving SVG files in IISExpress

If you just edit your web.config file it will actually break your website under IISExpress. Instead, follow the instructions found here:
  • Open a console application with administrator privileges.
  • Navigation to the IIS Express directory. This lives under Program Files or Program Files (x86)
  • Run the command appcmd set config /section:staticContent /+[fileExtension=’svg’,mimeType=’image/svg+xml’]
