Razor not working

Hello Experts,

Just built a Windows Server 2008 R2 server. Turned on
IIS and installed dot.net framework.

<%@ Page language="C#" %>
<html>
<head>
<title>Testing ASP.NET and C#</title>
<style type="text/css">
body {font-family: arial;
span.Text1 {font-size:24px;}
 </style>
</head>
<body>
<h2>Testing ASP.NET and C#:</h2>

Today's Date:
<%=DateTime.Now.ToString()%>
</body>
</html>

Open in new window


returns

Testing ASP.NET and C#:
Today's Date: 4/11/2014 1:26:49 PM 

Open in new window


So I know asp.net is working.

Was trying to do some Razor

Wrote
<!DOCTYPE html>

<html lang="en">
<head>
     <meta charset="utf-8" />
     <title>Web Pages Demo</title>
</head>
<body>
     <h1>Hello Web Pages</h1> 
     <p>The time is @DateTime.Now</p>
</body>
</html> 

Open in new window


This returns

Hello Web Pages
The time is @DateTime.Now

Open in new window


So the Razor is not working. Is there a library I need to install
or something I need to turn on to get it going? The tutorial says
'Razor has the power of traditional ASP.NET markup, but is easier to learn, and easier to use'. It seems to indicate that it works off of the dot net framework as  but
I am not having any luck.

Thanks.

Hello Kaufmed,

The Registry Editor says 'Net Framework Setup' v3.5.

(I looked in Control Panel > Programs and Features
and could not find it. Should it not be in there?
It is on my Windows 7 machine. Maybe its different on a
server.)
