Thanks, Peter!
Yes, when I use "localhost:3000/app.js" it works; returning "Hello world" to the browser.

It is strange that you append app.js to the end of the url. I would expect that the command to run your application is node app.js and that you access your application via the url localhost:3000. Not via localhost:3000/app.js, is this a typo?

Oh sorry for the added confusion. It makes no diff whether I add that /app.js or not (just re-tested). I was doing so because I had a few .js files there to try different tests. Thanks for hanging with me on this, Peter! Deadline approaching and I'm worried.

Unfortunately at the moment I don't have any more input to give you without being able to see the code and the configuration. Most of the time it helps to check every part independently but it looks like you double checked every part and setting. If I can help any further please let me know.

I hear you. Thanks for the amount you tried to help.
UPDATE: Got it working!
I had set up the URL Rewrite redirect rule wrong.
THANK YOU SOOO MUCH!
I was lost [in iisnode hell] before finding your article.
