Issue

ASP.Net is not showing as a user to select in dcomcnfg list configuring webclient on XP

Product Line

Andover Continuum

Environment

  • Windows XP
  • ASP.NET

Cause

This is usually caused because .Net was installed prior to IIS.

Resolution

  1. Run the aspnet_Regiis.exe -i to re-register the .Net framework with IIS
    C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\aspnet_regiis.exe -i
  2. Go back into dcomcnfg and asp.net will now be available.
  3. This normally does not require a reboot or restart of IIS
