IIS/ASP.Net Install Error “The referenced assembly is not installed on your system”

Guest post from Rick Barber from OrcsWeb today…


While attempting to install IIS through role services with other than the default options checked or ASP.Net under IIS in role services on Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 you may come across errors like the one below; ‘Attempt to install XXX failed with error code 0x800736B3.  The referenced assembly is not installed on your system.’

IISError01

After little success trying a variety of ‘fixes,’ I came across this KB article:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947821

Once I downloaded and installed the proper hotfix, I was able to install IIS and ASP.Net on my Windows 2008 R2 server.

IISError02


Happy hosting!
