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.

System requirements for installing Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Office Project Server 2007

Well lets start!! so first of all before jumping into how to handle various installation scenarios of Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Office Project Server 2007 I thought we should discuss the system requirements first.  The thing to remember is that Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Office Project Server 2007 have identical system requirements for installation. So lets breakdown the preparation of the system into simple and easy to follow steps.

Hardware and software requirements:

Prior to installing Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Office Project Server 2007 its always good that you get a detailed information of the hardware and software requirements. This article outlines in great detail the software and hardware requirements. Click here for the article.


Download and Install Microsoft .NET Framework version 3.0

e Microsoft .NET Framework version 3.0 download contains the Windows Workflow Foundation technology, which is required by workflow features. Please note that there are seperate versions for x86 based computers and x64 based computers make sure you download and install the appropriate version for your computer. Click here to download.


Enable ASP.NET 2.0

  1.  Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.


  2.  In the IIS Manager tree, click the plus sign (+) next to the server name, and then click the Web Service Extensions folder.

  3.  In the details pane, click ASP.NET v2.0.50727, and then click Allow.


Database server

The database server computer must be running Microsoft SQL Server 2005 or Microsoft SQL Server 2000 with the most recent service pack.

The Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Office Project Server 2007 Setup programs automatically create the necessary databases when you install and configure them. Optionally, you can preinstall the required databases if that is required by your IT environment or policies.

If you are using SQL Server 2005, you must also change the surface area settings.

Configure surface area settings in SQL Server 2005


Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Microsoft SQL Server 2005, point to Configuration Tools, and then click SQL Server Surface Area Configuration.


In the SQL Server 2005 Surface Area Configuration dialog box, click Surface Area Configuration for Services and Connections.


In the tree view, expand the node for your instance of SQL Server, expand the Database Engine node, and then click Remote Connections.


Select Local and Remote Connections, select Using both TCP/IP and named pipes, and then click OK.
