"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.


I had the same error message for my website that uses .Net.  I opened Server Manager again and selected Dashboard then add roles and features, under Application Server I selected the following options refer to image1.  That should take care of the issue if its .Net related.

Let me know how you make out.  Good Luck!
