    4. go to website properties and select default page 
    5. convert website's ASP.NET version to
    6. Then browse the application

    You need to install framework 4.5, and also need to check its compatibility with IIS 6

    Thanks mohtshm, 

    .NET 4 is already there in the machine. That is how I did the step 5 above.

    Actually What I meant was that framework 4.5 is not compatible with IIS 6. And framework 4.0 is not 4.5. You need to upgrade to IIS 7.x for that.

    Plz check this as well
