Problems installing Octopus on Windows Server 2012

Hello there,

we have the same error, as I found already on the boards, that the following file could not be found: ‘Microsoft.Web.Administration, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35’

This is true, but we have IIS 8 installed, hence the Version of Microsoft.Web.Administration is

I guess this requires a new version / build of Octopus to work?

Kind regards,
Marco Heine

Sorry, my mistake! It’s actual Windows Server 2008 R2, but with .NET framework 4.5 installed. Any ideas?

I’m seeing the same problem here on a freshly installed server (tentacle) with Windows Server 2008 R2, .NET 4.5, and IIS 7.5. Any ideas on what else needs to be installed?

I solved it, by re-registering the .net Framework with the IIS:
aspnet_regiis.exe -i

Thank you. That worked!
