Dot Net Framework 2.0 not working

P: n/a
I have installed the beta of Dot Net Framework 2.0 on my server, running IIS
5 and Win 2K Server.

I have configured my test virutal directory to use ASP.NET version
2.0.40607.0 (under the ASP.NET tab in the directory properties).

I am having problems getting this site to work. When I goto this virutal
directory I get the following error message:

Failed to access IIS metabase.
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the
current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about
the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.Web.Hosting.HostingEnvironmentException: Failed to
access IIS metabase.

The process account used to run ASP.NET must have read access to the IIS
metabase (e.g. IIS://servername/W3SVC). For information on modifying metabase
permissions, please see http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=267904.
I have tried the link listed in the error, but I have had no luck in getting
the metaacl.vbs script to add the ASPNET user read permissions to the
metabase. However the ASPNET user is already in the MEtabase with Read, Write
and Enumerate permissions at the site level -- I would think this would allow
the same permissions on the virtual directory with a site.

Can anyone help with getting this working?

Thanks!

Sorry, no help here.

I have the exact same problem. I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling the
framework, using metaacl.vbs, and adding every IIS/ASP related account to
the local admin group. Nothing worked.

I had the same problem. Here's what I did to fix it:

Open IIS. Right click properties. Select the Operators tab. Click Add.

Add the ASPNET worker process: <MachineName>\ASPNET. Click Ok.

Start a new browser instance and try the page again. It should work.
