Web Pages do not display after new installation on Windows 2008 64 bit

Hi All...

Environment: Window 2008 64 bit.

Installing: Latest WebTools compatible with 64 bit.

Installed: 2.0

After installing webtools in this environment we attempt to register/request the license.

After clicking on the request - windows prompts you to open.

If you attempt to open, you are asked which program to open with...?

That seems odd.

At this point this is all I have and am stuck as the system is inaccessible.

Hi Robert

Try and register aspnet to IIS again. There must be something with the IIS MimeTypes that is prompting you to download the xml rather than display it or process it.

From the command line:

C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\aspnet_regiis -i

This did help.

Also - I discovered that the webserver was not previously connected to the domain and was not inheriting permissions.

Steps Taken:

Uninstalled the IIS and ASP Roles from the web server as local server administrator.

Joined web server to domain.

Added the IIS and ASP Role.

Re-installed webtools.

Registration launched - no exceptions.
