When I enabled and started the World Wide Web service, I god an error that said a page handler wasn’t available. This appeared to be an ASP.Net problem. When I looked more into the IIS configuration I noticed the .Net 4 Application Pools weren’t there. After a bunch of messing around with settings, I finally did a “Repair” install of Visual Studio 2012. After this, the ASP.Net application pools were there and MDS ran fine. My assumption is the problem was caused by the Web Server being disabled when the 4.5 .Net framework was installed the first time. Not an earth shattering discovery but running into corporate security policies that disable web servers is pretty common so I hope this might save you an afternoon of tearing your hair out someday (yes, I’m officially blaming my shortage of hair on ASP.Net).
