Register ASP.Net on IIS in Windows 7

In IIS on Windows 7 it appears that the ‘old fashioned’ method of using ASP.NET IIS Registration Tool (Aspnet_regiis.exe) is no longer the correct method to update the script maps. Instead the Windows feature should be enabled via the control panel by following the steps below:

  1. Open the Control Panel
  2. Select “Programs”
  3. Select “Turn Windows Features on or off”
  4. Locate the following node:
    Internet Information ServicesWorld Wide Web Services > Application Development Features
  5. Tick the box for ASP.NET and confirm.
