Hi All

We have developed a Web based Information management system using VS 2008 and SQL 2005. The application is being run on Intranet where the application server and database server are separate. The maximum number of people who access the application on the intranet simultaneously would be 50-78. However after a few hours use the application suddenly freezes and crashes.
Some where on the internet we found out that this problem may be due to the .net framework and the website suggested to register the framework using the following command (from RUN)

\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\aspnet_regiis.exe -i

Strangely after running this command we are able to get the application back on track. Funnily we are using framework 3.5 but the command is for framework 2.0 and works well.
However since this happens all too often it has become frustrating. We have tested and retested the entire application for bugs however there seems to be no problem with it. Any insight will be highly appreciated.


The 3.5 framework is an extension of the 2.0 framework, so the utilities are often the same. This is unlike comparing framework 2.x and 1.x however, because 2.x completley replaced 1.x.

Take note of two MSDN articles for 2.0 and 3.5 pointing to the same utility:

Have you checked the running processes on your webserver when the application hangs up? Maybe you have something keeping the asp.net worker process from terminating. Also check your windows event log for clues.
