Winodows Server 2003.
WSUS is running, but I cannot open the console window. I believe it is related to repeated ASP errors in the event log:
Event Type: Warning
Event Source: ASP.NET 2.0.50727.0
Event Category: Web Event
Event ID: 1310
Event code: 3007
Event message: A compilation error has occurred.
Exception message: (0): error CS0006: Metadata file 'C:\WINDOWS\assembly\GAC_32\System.EnterpriseServices\188.8.131.52__b03f5f7f11d50a3a\System.EnterpriseServices.dll' could not be found
The reason that the dll cannot be found is that the directory does not exist in Windows\assembly. But, it is actually in C:\WINDOWS\WinSxS\x86_System.EnterpriseServices_b03f5f7f11d50a3a_184.108.40.206_x-ww_7d5f3790.
I have checked permissions for Network Service on Windows\Temp and the TEMP ASP.Net folders. Also tried aspiis_reset and uninstall/reinstall of IIS and WSUS. Could not uninstall .NET though....Ideas welcome!
