After installation of Notes Migrator (CMTe) software, the application pool will not start in IIS on Windows Server 2012.
This application pool in IIS 8.5 is enabled for 32 bit applications. It will not start if there is a StripHeadersModule in IIS.
This can be seen by observing the Event Viewer Application logs:
“The Module DLL C:\Windows\system32\inetsrv\stripheaders.dll failed to load. The data is the error.”
By default Windows Server 2012 R2 does not install .net 3.5 framework. The default installation of this server version installs version 4.5
