Configure AJAX Control Toolkit in the Sharepoint 2007 in Windows server 2003 or Windows server 2008 R2

AJAX has been working in the SharePoint 2007 with windows server 2003.
So we migrated the above share point code and installed share point 2007 with windows server 2008 R2, but AJAX is not working in the new environment, after that I researched lot of articles  long long hours for trouble shooting and apply in the below steps
1.Installing Correct one of the AJAX setup(e.g 1.0,3.0, etc)
2.Modifying Port web config
3.Amend Master Page with script Code
4. Move .JS related files to Layout folders(i missed this step, I face issue then i fixed it)

<ajaxToolkit:ToolkitScriptManager EnablePartialRendering="true" runat="server" ID="ScriptManager1" />
