    Hi, I have a question.

    When I was using website administration tool it gives me error like this.

    An error was encountered. Please return to the previous page and try again.

    The following message may help in diagnosing the problem: Unable to initialize the native configuration support external to the web worker process (HRESULT=0x80004002). nativerd.dll must be in %windir%\system32\inetsrv. at System.Web.Configuration.ProcessHostConfigUtils.NativeConfigWrapper..ctor() at System.Web.Configuration.ProcessHostConfigUtils.InitStandaloneConfig() at System.Web.Configuration.ProcessHostMapPath..ctor(IProcessHostSupportFunctions functions) at System.Web.Configuration.IISMapPath.GetInstance() at System.Web.Configuration.HostingPreferredMapPath.GetInstance() at System.Web.Configuration.WebConfigurationHost.ChooseAndInitConfigMapPath(Boolean useConfigMapPath, IConfigMapPath configMapPath, ConfigurationFileMap fileMap) at System.Web.Configuration.WebConfigurationHost.InitForConfiguration(String& locationSubPath, String& configPath, String& locationConfigPath, IInternalConfigRoot configRoot, Object[] hostInitConfigurationParams) at System.Configuration.Configuration..ctor(String locationSubPath, Type typeConfigHost, Object[] hostInitConfigurationParams) at System.Configuration.Internal.InternalConfigConfigurationFactory.System.Configuration.Internal.IInternalConfigConfigurationFactory.Create(Type typeConfigHost, Object[] hostInitConfigurationParams) at System.Web.Configuration.WebConfigurationHost.OpenConfiguration(WebLevel webLevel, ConfigurationFileMap fileMap, VirtualPath path, String site, String locationSubPath, String server, String userName, String password, IntPtr tokenHandle) at System.Web.Configuration.WebConfigurationManager.OpenWebConfigurationImpl(WebLevel webLevel, ConfigurationFileMap fileMap, String path, String site, String locationSubPath, String server, String userName, String password, IntPtr userToken) at System.Web.Configuration.WebConfigurationManager.OpenWebConfiguration(String path) at System.Web.Administration.WebAdminPage.OpenWebConfiguration(String path, String appPhysPath, Boolean getWebConfigForSubDir) at System.Web.Administration.WebAdminPage.OpenWebConfiguration(String path, Boolean getWebConfigForSubDir) at System.Web.Administration.WebAdminPage.OpenWebConfiguration(String path) at ASP.providers_manageproviders_aspx.ParentProviderCount(String serviceName) at ASP.providers_manageproviders_aspx.BindProviderLists() at ASP.providers_manageproviders_aspx.Page_Load() at System.Web.Util.CalliHelper.ArglessFunctionCaller(IntPtr fp, Object o) at System.Web.Util.CalliEventHandlerDelegateProxy.Callback(Object sender, EventArgs e) at System.Web.UI.Control.OnLoad(EventArgs e) at System.Web.UI.Control.LoadRecursive() at System.Web.UI.Page.ProcessRequestMain(Boolean includeStagesBeforeAsyncPoint, Boolean includeStagesAfterAsyncPoint)

    What should I do. I can't do anything with it. 

    Please help me. Thank you very much.

    Have you checked that nativerd.dll is in \Windows\System32\inetsrv?

    If so, check this thread for some other ideas: http://forums.iis.net/t/1119822.aspx

     i fixed my issue.  it was a conflicting asp.net ajax prefix.  once i changed <asp> to <ajax> all became well again.  i hope this helps.
