Error msg: Failed to access IIS metabase
After successfully testing ASP.net 2.0 projects, I "copied web site" and "Build > Publish" two ASP.net web sites to an existing web server running clasic ASP on VS 6.
Running these 2 ASP.net projects on the local, existing web server (with VS 6 installed)showed the same error msg: "Failed to access IIS metabase."
Later on, I found out there was no .net Framework 2.0 Configuration in Control Panel\Administrative Tools window. I ran Aspnet_regisiis.exe -i, it succeeded. But when I ran register Aspnet_isapi.dll, an error msg popped up:
"register Aspnet_isapi.dll was loaded, but the DllRegisterServer entry point was not found. This file can not be registered."
1. What does "Failed to access IIS metabase" mean? Becasue there is no .netFramework 2.0 Configuration on Administrative Tools windows?Checking the c:\WINNT\Microsoft.NET\Framework\ folder, did show a V2.05 folder, and the aspx applications are configured to v2.05. Why there is no .netFramework 2.0 configuration in Administrative Tools window?.
2. Wht's wrong with Aspnet_isapi.dll? What does "DllRegisterServer entry point was not found" mean?
