Solution: Experiencing problems after upgrading Windows 2003 to SP2

    I had a hell of a weekend after upgrading my server to service pack 2.

    Here is what I did to get things working again...

    I continually received Visual C++ Runtime Errors on various executables. It seems SP2 broke the dotnet frameworks. To fix this I downloaded both framework redistributables and ran them specifying "Repair".
    Restart your server after these.

    SP2 removed some of the security settings for the "Network Service" which caused all dotnet web sites to fail with security related issues.
    1. Open "IIS Manager"
    2. Right-Click on "Application Pools"
    3. Click on above "Properties"
    4. Click on "Identity" tab
    5. Change "Predefined" from "Network Service" to "Local System"

    I hope these instructions helps you.

    Kind regards,
