First: Make sure that the .NET Framework version value is v4.0.

2. In the left tree-view, locate the Sites node and find the Default Web Site node under it (or the name of the site where the error message appears).

3 Right-click the node and select Manage web site -> Advanced settings…. Note the name of the value Application pool. Close this dialog.

4. In the treeview to the left, locate and select the node Application pools.

5. In the list to the right, locate the Application pool with the same name as the one you noted in the web site settings. Right-click it and select Advanced settings
