  • Question

  • Hi 

    I install net framework in windows server core, it's install with all features

    because in this link:



    :This is the same IIS-ASPNET that is included in full installations of Windows Server 2008 R2. However, the Web Application Tool (WAT) is not available and you should use System.Net.Mail classes instead of System.Web.Mail classes.

    and this video :

    in minute: 01:32

    say: IIS in server core don't execute the dll: system.web.mail.

  • Hi Neonash,

    Windows Server 2008 R2 Server Core includes subsets of the 2.0/3.0/3.5 .NET Framework. The Framework makes it possible to run an almost full-featured version of ASP.NET. But you don’t get MMC-Snap-ins, No System.Web.Mail Namespace, and no Web Application Tool (WAT). If you can live with those limitations, you’ll want to support Server Core both in your development, for customer deployment, and for your own hosting.

    For more detailed information, please refer to this article:

    Server Core Enhanced for Windows Server 2008 R2

    Inaddition, The classes in this namespace "system.web.mail" have been deprecated. Use the System.Net.Mail namespace instead.

    Best Regards,

    Anna Wang
