Running Microsoft IIS 6.0 on Windows Server 2003

If you are using Internet Information Server (IIS) 6.0 (the default server on Windows Server 2003), you will need to enable ASP.NET 2.0 or later.


Step 1: Start the Internet Information Services Manager from the Administrative Tools of your Program menu.

Step 2: Select Web Service Extensions under the Web Sites node in the tree view on the left.  You will see a set of Web Service Extensions listed on the right side.

Step 3: Right mouse click on ASP.NET v1.1.4322 (for example) and select Allow from the menu.

Once you enable the Web service extension, the value of the Status column in the list changes to Allowed from Prohibited.
