Note that if you do this V1.0 will register itself as the asp.net handler if
you're running IIS. If you are running v1.1, or 2.0 betas you will need to
re-register the correct version, either via the command line, changing to
c:\windows\Microsoft.Net\Framework then change directory into the version
