The install for SQLSRVREXP 2005, for Vista x 64 its SQLEXPR_ADV.EXE downloaded from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/confirmation.aspx?familyId=b448b0d0-ee79-48f6-b50a-7c4f028c2e3d&displayLang=en
The first part of the installation is an analysis of the computer's configuration.
There was one warning. Opening the details shows:
- ASP.Net Version Registration Requirement (Warning)
- ASP.Net Version Registration Requirement
- Failed to find the ASP.Net Version Registration with Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS)
What does the "ASP.Net Version Registration with Microsoft IIS" mean and how would I fix this?
Update: Since IIS is referenced in the report, I checked the status of IIS on my system and it's up and running. I also checked ASP.NET, likewise that's running as a service.
My guess is that it's some component of the IIS that it's looking for. In my XP/PRO machine I installed SQL Server Express 2005 without any warnings. It's running IIS 6.0 with ASP.NET services. I'm not sure if that advances the issue or not, but I thought I would include it for comparison.
