WSUS not working on SBS2011

I was investigating a fault today for a client – their new SBS 2011 server had stopped working with WSUS.  As my investigation went on I found that this issue would also affect the SBS Client Connect as well as other web based applications on this server.

The SBS console was reporting “An error occured while retrieving updates information.” as the screen below shows.


I did some digging and found that the WSUS console was broken too.

The event logs showed the error below.

Source: IIS-W3SVC-WP

Event ID: 2274

ISAPI Filter ‘C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\\aspnet_filter.dll’ could not be loaded due to a configuration problem. The current configuration only supports loading images built for a AMD64 processor architecture. The data field contains the error number. To learn more about this issue, including how to troubleshooting this kind of processor architecture mismatch error, see

Look closely and you will notice above that there’s a double \\ in the path name.


Once I’ve modified it to remove the double \\ and done an IISRESEt – it’s all working just fine.  The picture below shows the problem line AFTER I’ve modified it.



  1. Right here is the right website for anyone who wishes to
    understand this topic. You know so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I really will need to…HaHa).
    You definitely put a brand new spin on a subject that has been discussed for ages.
    Wonderful stuff, just great!

  2. I’vе beеn browsing online mߋre than 4 һoᥙrs today, yet I never found any interesting article
    ⅼike yours. Ιt’s pretty worth enough for me.
    In my vieᴡ, if aⅼl website owners and bloggers mаԀe gօod content aѕ you did, the internet will be а lot more useful than еѵer beforе.

  3. Greate article. Keep writing such kind of info on your blog.
    Im really impressed by it.
    Hello there, You have done an incredible job. I’ll certainly digg it and in my
    opinion recommend to my friends. I’m sure they’ll be benefited from this
    web site.
