Missing ASP.Net tab in IIS

October 13, 2008 at 11:06 am | Posted in IIS | 2 Comments

I realized that the ASP.Net tab no longer exists in IIS after installing VMWare Server. My machine has Windows Server 2003 SP2 and I work mainly with Visual Studio.Net 2003 and 2005.
After googling on the web I found this solution:

1- Stop IIS Admin service.
2- Search for Enable32BitAppOnWin64=”TRUE” in MetaBase.xml and delete that line.
You can find the MetaBase.xml in the following path:
<Your windows folder path>\system32\inetsrv\MetaBase.xml.
3- Restart IIS .

But the issue didn’t get fixed until I run  aspnet_regiis -i for both ASP.Net 1.1 and 2  .

And now the ASP.Net tab is back again in IIS.

    Canyou help Me


  2. Open your command prompt and navigate to Adminscripts folder ,for me it’s located at C:\Inetpub\AdminScripts , you can find it under the drive where you installed your Windows Server 2003.
    Then type the following command to disable 32 bit mode:
    cscript adsutil.vbs SET W3SVC/AppPools/Enable32bitAppOnWin64 0
