  • ASP.NET tab disappears after installing VMware Server

    Here's an obscure one I ran across today:

    In the Internet Information Services Manager, when ASP.NET is an installed component, after the installation of the IIS web management inferface for VMware Server, the ASP.NET tab disappears when examining website properties.

    Here are the steps to fix the issue:

    1) Stop the IIS Admin service (and any services that depend on it)

    2) Make a backup of the file C:\WINDOWS\system32\inetsrv\MetaBase.xml

    3) Open C:\WINDOWS\system32\inetsrv\MetaBase.xml in notepad or your favorite XML Editor. _DELETE_ the line that reads ‘Enable32BitAppOnWin64=”TRUE”’

    4) Start -> Run -> iisreset

    Your tab should now be back and functional.
