Could not load type 'System.ServiceModel.Activation.HttpModule' from assembly 'System.ServiceModel, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089



All NPM versions


The error occurs when there are multiple versions of the .NET Framework on the computer that is running IIS

%WINDIR%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319 or%WINDIR%\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319

3. Enter the following command:

aspnet_regiis.exe -iru
