Adding .NET functionality to Windows Vista Home Premium Internet Information Services

I had previously covered how to install IIS 7 on Windows Vista Home Premium. This time I'll be briefly covering what you need to enable ASP.NET as well.

As before, you'll want to select Control Panel from the Start menu, then click on the Programs link. Next, click on Turn Windows features on or off.

Expand Internet Information Services, followed by the World Wide Web Services and Application Development Features.

Since we want to be able to run ASP.NET applications, we'll need to check the ASP.NET checkbox. This will also enable the following three features.

  • .NET Extensibility
  • ISAPI Extensions
  • ISAPI Filters 

If you also want to run classic ASP pages, you'll need to check the ASP checkbox as well.
