Maybe you should restart the application pool in IIS.
IIS stores your configuration in the public folder, in the mendix this is the web folder. Did you remove the complete web folder before copying the new version of your web folder to the server?
If that is the case then you removed your IIS config as well and you need to reconfigure IIS.

I redid the entire deployment part for IIS (stopped the original IIS entry and added a new one)
Next message is
Service cannot be started. The handle is invalid
when trying to start the service
All through this the application stays accesable when I strat through console.......
