HTTP 500 Error (0x8007000d) When Starting Managed Metadata Service

I was doing some VM configuration this morning and stumbled upon a fun new error. I noticed that the Managed Metadata Service was stopped, and when I tried to start it, was directed to an IIS error page with the following information:

HTTP Error 500.19: The requested page cannot be accessed because the related configuration data for the page is invalid.
Error Code: 0x8007000d

The specific error code is the important part, as Microsoft actually has some semi-helpful documentation. The problem is that it claims the web application's configuration file is malformed, which was not actually the case for me. It turned out that the real problem was related to the URL Rewrite Module, which had been previously installed on the server but apparently caused an issue once the new web application was created. I was able to fix the issue simply by reinstalling the module from

One of those fun issues where it takes a long time to eventually find a very easy fix. Hopefully this post will save you some time!
