I'm positive that, by now, a lot of people have run into this problem but even with all the forum posts with great answers, I still can't seem to get to the bottom of it. Here are some specs:
- Windows Server 2008
- Visual Studio 2008 x86
So here's the issue:
I have VS2008 installed on the server listed above. This is our development server and everything is created and tested here. I have created an asp.net application, tested it on the dev. environment and everything works great. When I try to migrate this application up to our Quality Assurance environment (which is Windows Server 2003), I get the error in the subject title.
I've read many things that can be the cause of this and I'm positive that I know 2 ways of fixing it. One is from this post: Simple web site problem on Vista, related to <providerOption>, and the other is making sure 3.5 framework is at least installed on the server in question. There are 2 reasons why I'm unable to use these 2 methods:
- The patches from DVD that I'm supposed to install won't let me install them. Upon double clicking I recieve a message saying the "Update is not applicable to your computer"
- I don't have permission to install 3.5 frame
