Win2k3 not serving .aspx pages

Won't serve aspx pages on initial website, or new ones, but will serve html pages.  Is this a regsvr32 issue?  I haven't tried with .net 1.1, but all the sites being loaded are 2.0

Well, I'll start with the very basics:

Also, what is the error you get?  Can you turn off friendly error messages in IE and post the exact error here?

first :
 If you are using the IE then use the following configure to see actual error not friendly error.
   Internet explorer > Tool >Internet Options > Advanced > Turn off Show friendly HTTP error

Now check and you can see actuall error now .

2. You need to set the application website to use .NET 2.0.  In your error
message, it's trying to use version 1.1.

Install .net 2 on your system

control panel> Add remove program> window component > IIS and install

Add webextensions under IIS > webextension and allow

This question can be closed.  Noone was close.

Application Hosting was incorrectly installed.  After removing and reinstalling, it worked fine.
As a side note, I had to run the regsvr32 solution that's pasted all over the net AFTER the fact.
eh...sorry nihannet, I had to leave and didn't see the topic again until today.  Glad you got it worked out.
