On the final step of configuring the web server connector for ColdFusion 9.0.1 on a Windows 2008 box running IIS 7 I get the following message:

ASP.NET Window's feature is not installed. They are required to configure the IIS7 connector.

I've looked in the Server Manager Features area but can not find it.

When you go to manage your server (Windows I am talking about here) you likely added the IIS role. I believe what you need to do from there is "Add Features" to that role. Amongst the other features you should see an option for ASP.NET.

I don't have Win2k8 in front of me, so I cannot verify that, but that is how I remember it. I never got that error, I suspect I always just installed ASP.NET from the get-go.

Thanks Jason. That worked. – Sam Farmer Nov 10 '11 at 13:45
I updated our doc to indicate that ASP.NET should be enabled during IIS7 installation. – Steven Erat Nov 10 '11 at 15:32
