I'm only having to do this because otherwise it seems Office Pro won't install
[OK i expect I could remove a program, but I'd like to have the full suite just in case somebody else could make use of it]
I'm being requested to have
"IIS 7.0 or higher with ASP .NET 4.0 in the list of IIS Web Server Extensions"
Finding and activating IIS 7 was simple enough, but all the instructions I can find to follow that seem to refer to different versions of IIS. I'm running
IIS 7 on Win 10 (64 bit mostly).
I can follow instructions, but my skills are in other areas (I can use computers to do some fairly complex things with graphics, photos, music, but I can't set them up) - i run a small not-for-profit arts festival and sometimes we non-skilled just have to try
to do stuff. I'm flabbergasted it's difficult at all.
So can someone tell me how to install or link ASP .NET 4 in simple instructions? I believe I could get back to the IIS manager panel.
Thanks. Then you can go back to doing something cleverer.

What exactly are you trying to install? Office Professional does not rely on IIS at all.

You could only install IIS 10 from turn windows features on or off. If you need to enable asp.net 4.0 for your IIS 7 above version. So please enable the Internet information service from turn windows features on or off/world wide web service especially application
In addition, please ensure the .net framework 4.6 has been installed from turn windows features on or off as well.
Besides, please try to modify the registry key
HKLM/System/CCS/Services/W3SVC/Parameters/MajorVersion and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\InetStp from 10 to 9.

That surprised me too.
I have an Office Pro setup disc, part of a set I downloaded on a charity licence via MS Volume Licensing Service Center (completely legit, as we say in England), and I get an error message saying it won't run set-up until I've done that (I assume it starts
by checking if the system is suitable for the install). I may be able to go back to the VLSC download and exclude whatever component it is that wants it, I havent tried; the process was a little bewildering and I'd prefer to install the complete whole of Office,
just in case somebody needs to do any more advanced web work from the office and needs the program.
Thanks for the reply, tho'. I'll try some of the other suggestions first.

Ah. yes, you're right, it was a mid-labelled disc (thanks Johnny). But I did want to instal that stuff anyway.

Thanks, that worked. Needed telling that ASP.NET was on that turn on/off panel.
I could follow it from there.
