The error indicates that IIS is not installed on the machine. Please install IIS before using this tool

After installing a web server roll on a new Windows Server 2008 server I noticed asp.net wasn’t installed.  When running aspnet_regiis.exe -i I received the following error.

“The error indicates that IIS is not installed on the machine. Please install IIS before using this tool”

I quickly realised I was attempting to install asp.net from the x86 framework.  Installing from the C:\windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727\Framework64 resulted in a successful install.
