2.1.5. Ensure that ASP.NET is installed

Now that you have both IIS and .NET installed, you need to make sure that the Active Server Pages (ASP.NET) components that allow IIS to access the .NET framework have been correctly configured. If you installed .NET after IIS then ASP.NET is typically configured for you, but if you installed IIS afterwards, then further manual steps may be necessary. The settings are different depending on which version of Windows you are using:

a) Windows XP or 2003 Server

To verify that ASP.NET has been correctly configured, click on Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Internet Information Services to launch the IIS administrative console:

Expand the name of the web-server (marked as local computer), expand the “Web Sites” folder, right-click on “Default Web Site” and choose the “Properties” link. This will bring up the IIS configuration dialog-box with the ‘Virtual Directory’ tab highlighted. Then click on the ‘ASP.NET’ tab if it is listed:

If ASP.NET 4.0 is correctly configured you will see the ASP.NET tab, and it will list the ASP.NET version as being ‘4.0.30319’ as illustrated above. If you don’t see this tab, you either don’t have ASP.NET configured, or you have an earlier version of ASP.NET (v1.1 or v2.0) configured.

To configure ASP.NET 4.0 for an existing IIS website, you need to open up Windows Explorer and navigate to the folder containing the .NET Framework. So, for example, if you have .NET Framework v4.0 installed, you would navigate to C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319. Now, you need to open up a Windows command prompt by clicking Start > Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt. This will open up the command prompt window:

Now change the directory in the command window to the folder name in windows explorer (i.e. typecd C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319 where the version number matches the version number of the framework you have installed). Once you have changed the directory to the appropriate folder, simply type aspnet_regiis.exe –i to configure ASP.NET. You can now verify that ASP.NET has been installed by checking the IIS management console (as described above).

For 64-bit versions of Windows, please use C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319

b) Windows Vista, 7 or 2008 Server

To verify that ASP.NET has been correctly configured, click on Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager to launch the IIS administrative console:

You should see a section called “ASP.NET” occupying the top third of the IIS screen. If not, then you need to go back to section 2.1.3 and make sure that you chose the option to install ASP.NET when installing IIS.

c) Windows 8 or 2012 Server

To verify that ASP.NET has been correctly configured, click on Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager to launch the IIS administrative console:

You should see a section called “ASP.NET” occupying the top third of the IIS screen. If not, then you need to go back to section 2.1.3 and make sure that you chose the option to install ASP.NET when installing IIS.
