No shortcut to .NET Framework 2 after installation

I installed .NET Framework 2 on a new pc that had Framework 1.1. But after installation, I do not see a shortcut to Framework 2, only 1.1.  If I browse to "C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework" I do not see a directory for  v2.0.50727.
Also, when setting up IIS, I cannot see ASP.NET tab on my Web Service property page.
Are these problems related?
By the way, the machine did not have IIS installed so I had to resort to "Add/Remove" Windows components to install it.
Thank you for your help.

Can you let your pc search for the v2.0.x folder.
When installing IIS after your .NET framework you have register asp.net again.

I have always been sure to install IIS previous to .Net installs.

Try uninstalling .Net first, then reinstall it.

I actually installed IIS before installing Framework 2. Should I unistall both and re-install in a particular order?

Good Question. I thought I needed 2.0 as my webservice was developed on a machine with 2.0.

as far as ASP.NET is concerned framework 2.0 and 3.5 makes no different. Even after installing framework 3.5 still you will see ASP.NET version as 2.0 in IIS's ASP.NET tab.

First you need to find out where your framework is installed. For example there is possibility that the windows folder you are seeing might be left over from previous installation of a OS or if it is multiple boot system then it could belong to another OS. Once you have identifed where your framework 2.0 installation (or if you need to reinstall it) you have run the following command, so that ASP.NET will be enabled for IIS.

aspnet_regiis.exe -i

hope this helps
