I have documents with QR codes on them that people scan with Android and iOS devices all day, thousands of them, the bar codes present a link in the form:


This works brilliantly, except for when people scan the codes with Windows Phones. When they do that, they get a 404 error (Page not found) and a look at the logs
I can see that something has been appended after the .asp and before the ?a=1.

so a call from an Android device looks like this in the log:

2017-02-22 12:11:10 GET /myprog.asp A=1&B=2

and from the WIndows Phone looks like this

2017-02-22 12:11:10 GET /myprog.asp?A=1&B=2

I've tried a rewrite rule changing myprog.asp* to myprog.asp, but that just drops the querystring

Anyone any ideas?
