From Windows Server 2003 Std Ed SP, 32 bit VMWare Virtual Server
.Net Framework v1.1.4322
When attempting to run a hello world aspx page it fails to load returning the message "Server Application Unavailable". The application even viewer logged the following:
Event Type: Error
Event Source: ASP.NET 1.1.4322.0
Event Category: None
Event ID: 1088
Failed to execute request because the App-Domain could not be created.
Error: 0x80070002 The system cannot find the file specified.
I tried to run aspnet_regiis.exe -i, rebooted but this did not work.
I tried to uninstall, reboot, reinstall .net from the Windows component section of Add/Remove Programs.
Does anybody have any ideas?

"Server Application Unavailable" means IIS application is not running.
Make sure you allocate read permission for Network Service / IIS Guest user to website folder.

I gave IUSR, IWAM AND Everyone full control on the web site's root folder and replaced all permissions on child objects (in this case my hello world site only has one file (default.aspx)). This did not work. A posting from
www.iis.net recommended running Process Monitor. After trying to pull the page up again the following errors were found.
Do any of these errors seem like they would prevent .net pages from displaying?
I ran PerfMon and didn't see anything that stuck out (in my mind). The following were "Name Not Found" and "Path Not Found" errors that were recorded when I attempted to pull default.aspx up from another machine.

Website home folder is located at "D:\WebSites\test\" ?
Have you checked existence of the files listed in Path Not Found error.
Sep 07, 2010 03:25 PM|LINK
Sorry, I should have provided more details. I was trying to get out for the holiday weekend!
The root folder of the website is correct.
For files like \web.manifest, \web.config and \bin\*.* which do not extist, I can get a test site up and running on other servers without these files. So simply having one file (default.aspx) should work fine.
For files in C:\Documents and Settings\CSCDICHECK04\ASPNET\Local Settings\Application Data\ApplicationHistory I verified that the aspnet account has full control over the folder so it should not be permissions related. As for the files aspnet_wp.exe is
looking for (d6907287.bf16b455.ini) I don't see it there but other files do exists.
For the errors located in C:\WINDOWS\assembly\GAC\*.* I checked for the existence of the files but I don't have a GAC folder let alone any of the files. I checked two other servers in my environment that can server up asp.net pages and they don't have
a GAC folder either.
The only thing unusual about my IIS configuration is that I'm running is IIS 5.0 isolation mode for a legacy classic asp web site (at the request of the vendor). However, I do have the same configuration up and running on another box.
I'm at a loss.

Run Process Monitor to see what file is actually missing:
Sep 08, 2010 12:26 PM|LINK
I ran Process Monitor and listed the results above in a previous post (09-03-2010, 2:33 PM). In a subsuquent post I broke down what I found on the server (09-07-2010). I didn't see any files that would be required. Files like <site root>\web.manifest,
\web.config and \bin\*.* which Process Monitor listed as Name Not Found should not be required to display a hello world site.

Are you sure that the .NET Framework 1.1 installation is not just corrupted? Have you tried to repair it? And do you always get this error or just once in a while?
Sep 08, 2010 12:46 PM|LINK
I tried to uninstall, reboot, reinstall .net from the Windows component section of Add/Remove Programs but that didn't work either.

Can you try one more thing, enable Assembly Binding Log Viewer to see if there is an assembly missing or not:
Have you tried completely removing IIS and reinstalling it?
