Getting the following error while launching the AdminConsole:

Could not load type 'System.ServiceModel.Activation.HttpModule' from assembly 'System.ServiceModel, ......


If IIS is enabled after .NET 4 installation then ASP.NET is not registered with IIS. Users will encounter the following error when the site being targeted is ASP.NET 4:


Could not load type 'System.ServiceModel.Activation.HttpModule' from assembly 'System.ServiceModel, Version=,



To resolve this issue, run the following from elevated command from a command prompt line to register ASP.NET 4:


aspnet_regiis.exe /iru


The aspnet_regiis.exe file can be found in either:


  • %windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319
  • %windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319 (on a 64-bit machine)


Restart IIS using the command c:\iisreset /restart
