.NET 2.0 and IIS 5.1 -- 404 on .aspx
Posted on 2008-10-16
I am trying to get .NET 2.0 to run on Windows XP SP 2 with IIS 5.1. I am able to run ASP pages fine. When I load any .aspx page, I get "Server Error in '/' Application The resource cannot be found'. The actual version of .NET is 2.0.50727.3053.
When I load up IIS and look at the properties of the website, there is an ASP.net tab and 2.0 is selected. I have run aspnet_regiis.exe -u and -i over and over, with no noticeable change. I have messed with the permissions granting access to Everyone, IUSR, IWAM, ASPNET, and still no change.
What else is required to bypass this error and get .NET working? If I change the system to v1.0 (by uninstalling 2.0), the error goes away but the code does not work properly (as it was designed for 2.0).
