The .NET framework version 3.5 is not installed, or IIS is set to use another version for that site.

1 - If it is not already installed, install version 3.5 of the .NET framework.  That is available for download at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=333325FD-AE52-4E35-B531-508D977D32A6&displaylang=en

2 - Configure IIS to use .NET 3.5 for that website.  NOTE:  If you are running multiple websites and some of the others cannot use this version of the .NET platform, you will have to make a separate application pool for the ASPDNSF site.
