Enabling the ASP.NET 2.0 on Windows 2012


t may seem somewhat commonplace, but the answer is not so clear in the installation wizards, once the ASP.NET cannot be installed by the package.

The solution is very simple, in Windows 2012 the ASP.NET 2.0 and 3.0 are included in the .NET 3.5, as shown in the figure below the Server Manager, install Framework 3.5:


Important: While trying to install. NET 3.5 is required to use the "Specify source …" option in the summary of the Add/Remove and point to the directory [DVD]\Source\SXS (or local copy), because the DLLs. NET 3.5/2.0 are not copied for the winsxs directory where Windows keeps the DLLs in general.

To enable ASP.NET 2.0 is required after installing the Framework reopen the wizard and enable ASP.NET 3.5 in IIS:


Done, now the products that require ASP.NET 2.0 will install correctly, as the example below the System Center Service Manager 2012 Portal:


From → IIS, Windows 2012
