I'm trying to install KB 980368 A update is available that enables certain IIS 7.0 or IIS 7.5 handlers to handle requests whose URLs do not end with a period on a new Windows 2008 R2 server, but no matter which of the download packages I try, they all say "The update is not applicable to your computer"

I have Windows 2008 R2 Standard on an Intel Xeon E5520. I need that KB to have extenstionless URLs in ASP.NET MVC2.

How can I fix this?

Note, you don't need this for extension-less URLs unless you are matching with *.. – Richard Oct 2 '11 at 7:46
Anyone know if this same error comes up on a VMWare installation specifically? I have Server 2008 R2 SP1 installed already and still get the same error. – Faredoon Jul 25 '13 at 23:14

Did you apply SP1 to your R2 installation? If so, then you don't need to install that KB
