HTTP 1.1/500 Server Error

Hello all,

I have .NET working swimmingly on my Win 2K laptop. I'm in the process of trying to get it working on my home PC, running Win XP Pro.
IIS installed fine, .NET framework and the software installed fine, but here's the situation. Whenever I try to create a new web application in Vis Studio .NET 2003, I get the following error:
The web server reported the following error when attempting to create or open the Web project located at the following URL: 'http://localhost/test'. HTTP 1.1/500 Server Error'.
I did some further testing, and found the following:
-IIS is up, and successfully serves an HTML page I placed in wwwroot.
-IIS will not serve up the iisstart.asp file that's in wwwroot
-I'm logged in as a member of the local administrator group
-The default web site properties match the working IIS on my laptop exactly on every screen
Clearly, it looks like something just is missing somewhere. Any ideas what it might be?

I have exactly the same problem. I was told the by running Aspnet_RegIIS /i from command prompt (from the .net framework->v1.???? etc inside the windows folder) that this will resolve the issue.
However this does not seem to have worked for me - other users on the internet have reported this action as a resolution. Please let me know if you this helps you or indeed you can help me find the source of what is proving to be a major headache.

Ugh, I gave this try, and also did aspnet_regiis /c to update client scripts, but I still get the same error.

Have you figured out the problem on your end??

When you say "it won't run the iistart.asp" file, what happens? Do you get an error? If so, what is it?

Do you see anything in the Windows Event Logs?

I don't have access to the PC right now, but the error message is the one listed in the subject header:

HTTP 1.1/500 Server Error (NOT "Internal Server Error)
I'll check the Event Logs when I get home tonight.
12/18/2003 1:41:14 PM
Hi. I'm back. Nothing interesting in the event logs. I totally uninstalled VS 2003, .NET Framework 1.1, and IIS. Then, I reinstalled IIS alone, and I can't even bring up an old ASP page, without any .NET components installed at all.

I'm at my wits' end with this.

Can you bring up a .htm page?

Hi, I get the same sort of error. When I try to access any page other than a htm directly in the virtual root folder, i get this error:

Server Application Error
The server has encountered an error while loading an application during the processing of your request. Please refer to the event log for more detail information. Please contact the server administrator for assistance.
Whenever I try to access a file in a virtual directory this error comes up. Trying to run a project with VS.Net also shows the same error.
If anyone has any ideas on how to fix this please help (Re-installing iis, and hasn't helped).

Hi. I finally resolved this problem. For me, it was that the COM-related services on the server were not running. Unfortunately, I'm not at my PC right now, so I can't tell exactly what the services were, but they were things like COM+ Event System and so forth. Maybe the Distributed Transaction Coordinator.

Try turning those things on...

Thanks battists, looks like that was part of the problem, did a repair on the windows installation and that seemed to get atleast working :)

HTTP/1.1 500 Error
I am getting the above error, with the message "Server not available."  I have a hunch that the problem can be traced to a patch I installed this month.  The patch (SP2DBFix1.1.1.mxp) was supposed to correct an interaction problem between Dreamweaver and Asp.Net.History:  Everything in Visual Studio worked just fine last semester, when I took the Asp.Net class.  Now, none of the Asp.Net applications work, although the VB.Net apps in my Visual Studio still work as expected.  Help, please!Dee Start by finding the real error:
