Blank Page or Internal Server Error


Recommended Posts

After you have installed Passwordstate, it's possible you may get a blank screen when you access the site, or a very generic error about an Internal Server error has occurred.


This can sometimes occur when you have installed Internet Information Services (IIS) after you have installed the .NET Framework version 4.5. The Passwordstate installer can also install IIS for you if it isn't already installed.


If you get this error, you can try the following to resolve it:

  • Open an Command Prompt as an Administrator
  • Type CD C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319 or C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319 depending on our operating system version
  • Now type aspnet_regiis -i
  • After ASP.NET has been re-registered, ensure the Passwordstate Application Pool in IIS is set to 'Integrated Managed Pipeline Mode', and then restart IIS (you need to open the Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager tool to do this
  • Now open your browser and point it back to the Passwordstate web site


You may need to do this for both the 32bit and 64bit versions on the Framework directories above if you still experience issues.


This has help a few customers in the past, and we hope you find this information useful.

We were testing the install on a W10 not attached do a domain and found that aspnet_regiis -i does not work.

The error that comes back asks you to reinstall ASPNET but this did not help us.

Running this in PS helped - dism /online /enable-feature /all /featurename:IIS-ASPNET45
