Why don't I have ASPNET & IIS_WPG user accounts?

I have recently created a new server for use with a product named 'EasyLobby'. I need to grant user accounts, ASPNET and IIS_WPG, the proper permissions to EasyLobby's directories, but I can not find these accounts. I have read that they are automatically added once IIS and ASPNET are installed, which they are. How can I get these accounts?

Here are some details:
Windows Server 2008 SP2
IIS
ASPNET
SQL Server 2005
No Domain; WORKGROUP

right click on "My Computer"  and then click "Manage" and Computer Management window will open. Click on Local Users and Group and then Users. You will see your users over there mate.

I assumed you are on windows XP.
But if you are on Vista/Windows 7, do the same or go to Control Panel and Administrative Tools -> Computer Management and it will take you to the same place.

hope this helps.

Please install the needed version of .NET Framework , the accounts will register with IIS once you are done.

Also if  the proper .NET version is already installed in the proper sequence , try registering the Aspnet user using ASPNET_Regiis.exe tool

As a rule of thumb, install IIS first , then follow it by the .NET installation , not the other way around.
