I developed an asp.net 3.5 webApp, and want to deploy to winXP-IIS5.1
But it failed to run.
Have you installed Dot Net Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1?
You will need the proper version of Dot Net installed and registered with the "aspnet_regiis.exe" Tool.
I had tried to upgrade the default IIS 5.1.
I suggest you read
http://blogs.iis.net/davcox/archive/2009/06/29/how-to-download-iis.aspx IIS Team post
for the versions of IIS Server which are operating system dependent.
The IIS 5.1 on Windows XP can not be upgraded to IIS 6 or IIS 7.

item 1) The Web Application that you created where was this created?
item 2) The Web Application that you created how are you deploying or putting this on the Windows XP system?
Ok, You have installed dotnetframework 3.5 on the WinXP IIS machine and and had performed a "aspnet_regiis.exe".
Was the Web Application created on a system that also had the Dot Net 4.0 Framework installed
and uses Dot Net 4.0 components and code ?
Dot Net Framework versions and installation and IIS Server versions and upgrades information:
The Dot Net Frameworks 2.0, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0 if installed with the latest updates for Service Packs and Security patches
is supported on Windows XP Professional and IIS 5.1 Server.
a) Dotnetframework 3.5 not supported in IIS5.1?
The Dot Net Framework 3.5 is supported on IIS 5.1 see notes above.
Dot Net Frameworks are supported on IIS Server 5.1 and higher versions.
See the notes above about versions and installation.
b) Yes IIS5.1 is default WebServer in Winows XP Professional and cannot be upgraded to a higher Version IIS6 or 7 on WinXP machine?
No you can not upgrade IIS 5.1 Server to a higher version unless you upgrade the Operating System.
c) This does not follow (If the above point a & b are both true) logically.
Applications using ASP.NET App built on dotnetframework 3.5 can be hosted on IIS 5.1 on WinXP Professional.
If the correct Dot Net Frameworks are installed as noted earlier.
d) This does not follow (if point c is true.) logically.
The Web Applications written on dotnetframework 3.5 & above can also be host on the following systems:
- IIS 6 on WinServer 2003. The Windows 2003 operating system has IIS 6.0 server.
- IIS 7 on Window Vista or WinServer 2008. The Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 have IIS 7.0 Server.
- IIS 7.5 on Window 7 (coming soon but when)? is already part of the Windows 7 operating system and is IIS 7.5 Server.
- Window 7 the current version of IIS is 7.5 there is no IIS 6.1 Server.
- Windows 7 can support WebApp on DotNetFramework3.5 and DotNetFramework 2.0 and DotNetFramework 4.0
- IIS 8 on window unknown???. The Windows System for IIS 8 Server has not yet been released.
It is possible that others have had problems with creating or running Web Applications:
The common failure can be not having installed the required Dot Net Frameworks.
The common failure can be the type of Deployment to the IIS Server.
Not knowing how the Web Application was created or where it is hard to say more.
If you check the IIS 5.1 Server logs and error message it may help in resolving the issues.
Hope this helps,

I suggest that you check Aaron Stebner's MSDN Web Site
and get the Dot Net Verification Tool
use it to check the Framework Versions currently installed.
While still at Aaron Stebners Web Site read the
Dot Net Framework set-up guide
http://blogs.msdn.com/b/astebner/archive/2010/12/22/10108400.aspx for installation
In the articles by Aaron Stebner contain the links to the required Windows Installer packages that are required.
Just so you know he usually provides links to the stand-alone packages and they can be large and require a good internet
Since your using Visual Studio 2008 Aaron has a guide for proper set-up and configuration.

you can use windows update to get all latest security Patches
I suggest that Windows Updates be used with extreme care on a Developer System.

Many thank to the valuable help. The framework update, service patch and Window Security Packs, are installed and indeed it helps
However, Now I got a different set of errors. I guess it is trying to look for CrystalReport & Microsoft Report Library System file.
My WebApp will not work without these Reporting Tools (that come default within Visual Studio 2008).
Any patches need to be updated in order for the IIS to work with CrystalReport & Microsoft Report,
where can i obtain these patches for updating to the IIS? (stressed! :<)
See below for screen shot of the Error that is pointing to the Web.Config
Source Error #1:
Source File: C:\Project\FlammableSubstanceTrack\ver 1.4.3x\web.config Line:
Source Error #2:
Source File: C:\Project\FlammableSubstanceTrack\ver 1.4.3x\web.config Line: 51
Source Error #3:
Source File: C:\Project\FlammableSubstanceTrack\ver 1.4.3x\web.config Line: 88

To fix the Crystal Reports problems you will need to visit the:
Crystal Reports Web Site and get the latest redistributable for Visual Studio 2008 Crystal reports
and install the Assemblys as part of your Project.
The SAP Crystal Reports site has instructions and guides.
The page at Crystal Reports at SAP Community Network http://forums.sdn.sap.com/forum.jspa?forumID=313 is the
start page to find latest fix packs and updates.
For problems with Crystal Reports and coding the the SAP Forums is best place to get help and guides.
For the Linq Reference and Assembly you should check which version is in the GAC on the target machine and update
the web.config reference.
