Azure SDK enable IIS 7.0 with ASP.NET support

Trying to install Windows Azure SDK and Windows Azure Tools for Microsoft Visual Studio on Windows 7 running IIS 7.5 throws an error that states, "... enable internet information services 7.0 with asp.net support ..."

I do not have IIS 7.0 - I am using IIS 7.5. Surely the Windows Azure SDK and Windows Azure Tools are compatible with 7.5 though? Well, they are! So why do I need IIS 7.0?

Well, you don't. The clue is in the message "with ASP.NET support." I needed to edit my IIS in control panel to do this.

Enabling IIS 7+ with ASP.NET

Go to Control Panel > Programs > Turn Windows features on or off.

Then find Internet Information Services. Expand it then go to World Wide Web Services, then Application Development Features and then check ASP.NET. This will check a few other dependent features and after a short wait should be able to run the installation for Windows Azure SDK again.
