asp.net on server 2003 with IIS NOT installed, System.DllNotFo undException: Unable to load DLL (aspnet_isapi.d ll)."

EP

When running my asp.net hosting service (asp.net without IIS), on server
2003 with IIS not installed, I get the following when trying to process a
request.
"System.DllNotF oundException: Unable to load DLL (aspnet_isapi.d ll)."

Of course the dll is able to be found, it's still in the framework directory
and for grins I even put it in my service's local directory. This is apparantly
server 2003 not allowing asp.net to be run if IIS was not installed. Is
there any way around this?

This works on win2000, xp with and without IIS, and on server 2003 with IIS.

If you can get ASP.NET to run without IIS having been installed,
unless you are running another web server which can host the
ASP.NET processes, like Cassini, I'll give you a medal.

How do you expect ASP.NET to run, if not on IIS ?
Did you write a web server for ASP.NET to run on ?

re:
for grins I even put it in my service's local directory
I find that illogical actions are not a source of humor.
OTOH, I grin at what you attempted to do... ;-)

Well I've been working on this since yesterday, and found the solution about
10 minutes after posting here!!!
If anyone else has this problem, simply run aspnet_regiis with IIS uninstalled,
and your asp.net runtime will start working again.
In response to Juan, yes our service hosts it's own web server which was
loosly based on cassini, and exposes web services.

Huh ?

Didn't you say that you are *not* running IIS ?
As its name indicates, aspnet_regiis registers asp.net with IIS!

If there's no IIS, it can't register asp.net with it.

re: In response to Juan, yes our service hosts it's own web server which was loosly based on
cassini, and exposes web services.
I figured as much.
I don't understand how aspnet_regiis can register it with your web server, though.

If your web server is based on Cassini, it should run asp.net files out of the box.

Yes, that is what one would think. But in reality, server 2003 is different.
aspnet_regiis apparantly does some registry settings or sets other switches
which the asp.net framework looks for while on 2003.

And yes, one would think that aspnet_regiis wouldn't have any effect if iis
is not there, but it does.
If your web server is based on Cassini, it should run asp.net files
out of the box.
one would think so, But it doesn't. The .net framework behaves differently
on server 2003, which is why the sp1 redistributable for .net 1.1 has a different
redistributable file for server 2003.

while it's counter-intuitive, put very simply... if you uninstall IIS and
no not run aspnet_regiis, you get DllNotFound(asp _isapi.dll). Once you run
aspnet_regiis, it works.

Well juan, I posted a problem and the resulting solution. I'm not sure why
you refuse to accept my first-hand experience. Have you tried it? I'm also
not sure why you feel it necessary to try to prove me wrong in a situation
that you have no experience in. It almost seems you have some religious
belief about the way that asp.net works on server 2003 and the way the service
pack is distributed. I'm very sorry if I've disappointed you, and didn't
mean to make your belief system come crashing down.

Ha! That was a very funny, and enlightening thread. Juan, you really
have to think before you post. You're an ASP.NET MVP for pity's sake,
so before you start being a smart-ass do some extra research.

If your web server is based on Cassini, it should run asp.net files
out of the box.

one would think so, But it doesn't. The .net framework behaves
differently on server 2003, which is why the sp1 redistributable for
.net 1.1 has a different redistributable file for server 2003.

while it's counter-intuitive, put very simply... if you uninstall IIS
and no not run aspnet_regiis, you get DllNotFound(asp _isapi.dll).
Once you run aspnet_regiis, it works.

Huh ?

Didn't you say that you are *not* running IIS ?
As its name indicates, aspnet_regiis registers asp.net with IIS!
If there's no IIS, it can't register asp.net with it.

I figured as much.
I don't understand how aspnet_regiis can register it with your web
server, though.

re:
Well juan, I posted a problem and the resulting solution.
That part I accepted.

re: I'm not sure why you refuse to accept my first-hand experience.
Because I can't stand incorrect information being disseminated ?

You posted that : the sp1 redistributable for .net 1.1 has a different redistributable file for server
2003.
That's plainly incorrect.
I did *not* refer to your other statements.

re: Ok, i'll be more specific. I am running server 2003 standard edition.
OK, where is the "special" sp1 edition for server 2003 standard edition ?

re:"It almost seems you have some religious belief about the way that asp.net works on
server 2003 and the way the service pack is distributed."
I'll skip answering that.

When you find a special sp1 edition for
server 2003 standard edition, I might change my mind.

Yes, that is what one would think. But in reality, server 2003 is
different.
aspnet_regiis apparantly does some registry settings or sets other
switches which the
asp.net framework looks for while on 2003.
And yes, one would think that aspnet_regiis wouldn't have any effect
if iis is not
there, but it does.
