  • User-421238278 posted

    I have an existing website that has been running asp scripts and asp.net 2.0 for some time. I just installed webmatrix and now I need, what .net framework 4.0 for it to run? I downloaded "Microsoft .NET Framework 4 (Standalone Installer) for Server Core" and it wouldn't install. What is it that I need to install to get this going? Thanks!

    Microsoft .NET Framework 4 (Standalone Installer) for Server Core

    Hi advlaser,

    Besides install .NET framework 4.0, you need also specify a .NET Framework version for an application pool. Please follow steps below:

    • Open IIS Manager. For information about opening IIS Manager, see Open IIS Manager (IIS 7).
    • On the Connections pane, expand the server node and click Application Pools.

    • On the Application Pools page, select the application pool for which you want to specify a .NET Framework version, and then click Basic Settings in the Actions pane.

    • In the Edit Application Pool dialog box, in the .NET Framework version list, select the version that you want the application pool to use

    • Click OK.

    With regards,
