I'm trying to fix/patch the ASPNET 1.1 framework problem with the user-adgent string being too long.

Is there a ISAPI filter that could shape the USER-AGENT header before passing in to ASPNET?

ISAPI_Rewrite from You should be able to change the USER_AGENT.

Although there does seem to be a bug in there RewriteHeader directive... have raised a support question to find out. – Adrian Sep 4 '09 at 11:33

Have you looked into ISAPI Rewrite to see if it will do what you're looking for? It's fairly robust.
