View a List of .NET Profile Settings (IIS 7)

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista

To manage .NET profile settings easily, you can view a list that contains all .NET profile settings for a particular configuration level. You can sort this list by name, data type, default value, availability of the .NET profile property to unauthenticated users, or scope (local or inherited). You can also group .NET profile settings by scope to see quickly which .NET profile settings apply at the current configuration level and which .NET profile settings are inherited from a parent level.
