Setup Error::”This product requires ASP.NET v2.0 to be set to ‘Allow’ in the list of IIS Web Server Extensions”

While I was installing WSS 3.0 on my home machine I came across the following error
 
"Setup is unable to proceed due to the following error(s):
This product requires ASP.NET v2.0 to be set to ‘Allow’ in the list of Internet Information Services (IIS) Web Server Extensions. If it is not available in the list, reinstall ASP.Net v2.0.

Correct the issue(s) listed above and re-run setup.
"  
 
It was a very confusing error since it clearly stated in my IIS Web Service Extensions page that "ASP.NET v2.0.50727 " is listed as "Allowed". I googled up the error and came across a very good forum on which the same error was being discussed and some solutions were posted.
 
To get pass this error run the following command aspnet_regiis.exe -i on the following path \\Windows\Microsoft.Net\Framework\v2.0.50727
 


If you are using x64 machine and you still get the error, please run

\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727\aspnet_regiis.exe -i

Notice in this case we have Framework64 Folder instead of the simple Framework folder.

I hope this post was useful to you.

    Thanks to your post I could solve a "show stopper". But I had to do one further step which was "allowing" asp.net v2.0.50727 on the IIS webserver extension tab as it was visible after I have run your command but still on prohibited.
    Maybe this is useful information for other who are facing the same problem I had.
    Just some information about my environment as this maybe make this extra step necessary…
    Windows 2003 SP2 english, 64 BIT
