I just upgraded my laptop to Vista RTM (business edition), and after getting all my tools running again, I am finding that the ASP.NET Session State service is not listed as a service? Is this something that is even available on Vista? If not, any idea
how to install the service?

Anyone have any ideas on what happened with this service?

After being unable to find the correct answer for this problem, I finally opened up a ticket with Microsoft to figure out what was going on.
What we found out is that in Windows Vista, you must now install the IIS web server on your development machine in order to use the ASP.NET Session State service. In Windows XP, you did not need to have IIS installed to use the service. Microsoft acknowledged
that this was an undocumented change from XP to Vista, and that they would create a knowledge base article for it. (I was not charged for the ticket, because it was undocumented)
Hope this helps out anyone else who runs into this problem.

What I found is that you need to do an aspnet_regiis -i that will install the services needed. Make sure you are in the right framework folder.
then you have to start the ASP.NET State Server, and set it to automatic.
