To resolve that issue please follow steps below –

1. Unregister all the versions of ASP.NET with command “C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\aspnet_regiis –ua”.

2. Delete the ASPNET account from “Local Users and Group – Users”.

3. Then registere ASP.NET 2.0 with IIS using “C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\aspnet_regiis –i”.

4. Give permissions to the ASPNET account using “C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\aspnet_regiis –ga machinename\ASPNET”.

5. Reset the IIS and that resolved the issue for ASP.NET 2.0.

6. Register ASP.NET 1.1 with IIS as well using command “C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\aspnet_regiis –i”.

7. Reset the IIS.

or

Run the following from your command line to reset IIS registry settings for aspnet user.

C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.Net\Framework\v2.0.50727>aspnet_ regiis -i

After following the above steps we configured virtual directory versions as required and test both ASP.NET 1.1 and ASP.NET 2.0 application.

Everything will work after that.

Thanks!
