MOSS 2007 - Upload size and HTTP-error 404.13

Today I discovered a strange behaviour of MOSS 2007 in combination with IIS 7. Normally you set the maximum upload size on web application level, inside the central administration. Guess what, that doesn't work at all when you are running MOSS 2007 on a IIS 7. You will raise into a "HTTP-error 404.13 Not Found". Thanks to internet, I found the solution (it worked for me, so give it a try).

Solution 1 - Changes for all web sites:
Next statement will set the maximum file upload size to 100MB. Note: the maxAllowedContentLength is in bytes!
%windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd set config -section:requestFiltering -requestLimits.maxAllowedContentLength:104857600
Solution 2 - Changes for a web app:

%windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd set config "Default Web Site/" -section:requestFiltering -requestLimits.maxAllowedContentLength:104857600
Just execute the statement in a command prompt.
