Windows 2008 R2 and .cshtml mine type/handler

Not easy trying to figure out what is at issue in trying to make .cshtml work on a windows 2008 R2 server, even after installing .Net Framework 4.0 Full x64 bit as initially I installed the .Net Framework Client Profile.

After reading hours and hours and trying to figure out what could be the issue, I stumbled upon this article which shows in great detail what to do.

Steps to take:
Note: Caution, not advised for production, use at your own risk.

  1. Go to “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft ASP.NET\ASP.NET Web Pages\v2.0\Assemblies\”
  2. Copy these file in root of your web site or virtual folder for you application:
    1. Microsoft.Web.Infrastructure
    2. System.Web.Helpers
    3. System.Web.Razor
    4. System.Web.WebPages.Deployment
    5. System.Web.WebPages
    6. System.Web.WebPages.Razor
    7. WebMatrix.Data
    8. WebMatrix.WebData
  3. Run your application

Hope this resolves the issue of mine type setup for the application.


Below are some additional updates, one may need to apply to make the application work out okay.



Please leave a comment or suggestions; if it worked or didn’t worked for you; or if you had to apply some additional updates.

Completed UiPath - RPA Developer Advance Training

After a month of training, with late nights and weekends I have completed the UiPath RPA Developer Advance Training. The Level 1 Foundation Training pretty much covered all the basics of Desktop studio and workflows, only draw back was I started with the default foundation course which was for 2016, and all document reference links where pointing to 2016 version. I didn't understand it during the foundation training and kept switching to 2018 version document/page. Only after completing the Foundation course that I realized, I was suppose to have started with the 2018 version of Level 1 Foundation Training, but as it was optional I didn't have to retake the 2018 version, the 2016 was good enough for moving to level 2. The Level 2 Orchestrator 2018.3 Training as good. It gave good understanding of Queue's, Jobs, and schedules and I was able to complete the level two much faster then the level 1. The Level 3 UiPath Advanced Training was bit tough as it involved the a

KB 294807 - IIS Server - PHP FastCGI 500 Error 0xfffffffe

Resolved issue today of IIS Server - PHP FastCGI 500 Error 0xfffffffe by deleting "Windows Temp" folder files. We used Cygwin to customize some permissions of "Windows Temp" folder and after few hours the website stopped working. The search online was giving all kinds of different solution except what I was looking for. I was hoping the stackoverflow will have answers but even this post didn't cover the issue I was running into. Restarting the IIS didn't work, but deleting temp files cleared the issue, but now the problem is how long before the site will go down again? Hope the issue is resolved for ever, if not; I will update this post later.
