Extending IIS With ASP.NET 4.5 On Windows Server 2008 R2

Microsoft Dynamics GPThis is not something I need for the series of posts I am currently writing on the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 SP2 Web Client Scale-Out Deployment as my web server is running Windows Server 2012, but you may be performing the install on Windows Server 2008 R2 so I thought I would include this for completeness.
