I was trying to fix an problem where my tab does not show on x64 IIS Manager. Following some instructions, I reinstalled IIS from the command line using
%SYSTEMROOT%\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727\aspnet_regiis.exe -i

At completion there was an error in the installation log of saying:
2007-07-21 06:57:19            Starting      Reading the registry: Software\Microsoft\ASP.NET\2.0.50727.0/DllFullPath
2007-07-21 06:57:19            Failure       Reading the registry: Software\Microsoft\ASP.NET\2.0.50727.0/DllFullPath: Reading the registry:  failed with HRESULT 80070002: 'The system cannot find the file specified.

What does this mean? How do I fix it?
