Classic ASP - ASP.NET 2.0 On 64-Bit Server

Hi all,

I have a Windows 2003 64-bit server currently running a classic asp website. I have installed the .net 2.0 and .net 3.5 frameworks but cannot see the ASPNET tab within IIS6 to select the .net 2.0 framework for my new site.

I have had a look at the server and for some reason the hosting company who set the server up before handing it over have installed the .net framework 1.0 and 1.1 which I believe is not compatible with 64-bit machines. Based on this information I think that IIS is running in 32-bit mode and therefore will not allow me to view the ASPNET tab.

Could somebody out there please advise me how I can get the server to run my classic asp website and have IIS run in 64-bit mode so that I can see my ASPNET tab? Is this even a possibility? I think I know the answer to this one but would like to run it past the experts first.

Many thanks

I finally decided to run IIS in 32-bit mode all is working fine now. To do this I did the following:

1. Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.
2. Type the following command to enable the 32-bit mode:
cscript %SYSTEMDRIVE%\inetpub\adminscripts\adsutil.vbs SET W3SVC/AppPools/Enable32bitAppOnWin64 1
3. Type the following command to install the version of ASP.NET 2.0 (32-bit) and to install the script maps at the IIS root and under:
%SYSTEMROOT%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\aspnet_regiis.exe -i  
4. Make sure that the status of ASP.NET version 2.0.50727 (32-bit) is set to Allowed in the Web service extension list in Internet Information Services Manager.
