When depolying an ASPX web site, an error msg popped up, indicating
. apsx can not be opened. Finally, I realized that the production server is a Windows 2003, while test server is a XP.
According to http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/t6dbcb8d(vs.71).aspx , ASP.NET is installed as a role on the operating system for Win 2003 server, but with the .NET Framework on XP.
I have done ASP.NET and IIS Manager configuration on Win 2003 server, followed the article's instruction, however the aspx pages still can not be opened in the Win 2003 server.
The final error msg is: Failed to access IIS metabase.
Exactly how do I configure ASP.NET role on Win 2003 server? Any more information? BTW, do I have to re-start the Win 2003 production server to enable the ASP.NET and IIS configuration?
