How do you activate ASP.NET 2.0 with PWS

I have installed PWS on a new Windows XP machine and the ASP.NET 2.0 SDK.  My Web pages work with classic ASP, however it won't work with ASPX files.  I know there is an activation process to go through with ASP.NET 2.0 but cannot locate any help on the net.  Can someone please provide me with the steps involve in achieving this goal.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

For running a web application in dotnet we need to register te aspnet with the IIS. For this we need to run a certain exe available inthe below location.


Run this particular exe with the option "-i". On running this, we will get a message saying that the Installation has started and after some time a message saying that installation is complete.

After this you should be able to create and use an aspx page.

Hope this is useful.
