VS2003 web applications crash IIS after installing Asp 2.0

Hi,

I've installed vs2005 and then tried to run an 2003 web application
under VS2003 and get an IIS 500 error with two event log messages:

aspnet_wp.exe could not be started. The error code for the failure is
80004005. This error can be caused when the worker process account has
insufficient rights to read the .NET Framework files. Please ensure that
the .NET Framework is correctly installed and that the ACLs on the
installation directory allow access to the configured account.

and

aspnet_wp.exe could not be launched because the username and/or password
supplied in the processModel section of the config file are invalid.

I'm also getting heaps of

The description for Event ID ( 10021 ) in Source ( DCOM ).... errors as
well.

I also noticed that the ASPNET user account privelages were removed from
my dotnet v1.1.4322 folder after the install of VS2005. I've tried
machine and system uid's in <processModel> with pwd AutoGenerate in
v1.1.4322 - nothing.

I'm running IIS 5 and the web site is configured to run 1.1.4322

Can anyone help, I simply can't get VS2003 to work once I've upgraded to
VS2005?

cheers

I had this same problem. For me, it was because I truely HAD changed my
ASPNET user's password and modified the machine.config file processModel
from autogenerate to the known password.

I just reset the local ASPNET user's password again to my known value, and
unlocked the account<<.


All was well.

I have not figured out how to manually set the password in machine.config
for the 2.0 framework. All I see in the processModel is
autoConfig="true"...?

If you want to undo this, (ie reset the password back to autogenerated).
Rerun aspnet_regiis -i

Still trying to figure this all out myself.
