How to upgrade your server to framework 4
Because this is done through an online install with microsoft you first have to lower the security on your browser (if needed) to allow file downloads:

This is done through the browser menu on ie:

Tools > Internet Options > Security (tab) > Internet > Custom Level > Downloads >> File Download)

Enable this option

NOTE: Change ie back to keep the tighter settings once install has completed

Then goto http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=17851

This is the link to install the dotNetFx40_Full_setup.exe which installs the framework 4

When finished you need to change the asp.net setting in IIs6 to dotnet 4.0.30319 for any sites you will be converting to this framework.
