Configuration Error - Target Framework 2.0 instead of 4.x

All Nodinite Web Applications uses .NET 4.5 or later, hence Windows 2008 R2 customers must update the .NET Framework to 4.5. This may be a problem if BizTalk Server is installed on the same server. Web Client

The Problem

Invalid configuration of the IIS Application Pools will render Nodinite not operational.

During installation of Nodinite Update and the creation of new application pools for Nodinite in IIS, the default target framework on mainly Windows 2008 R2 and earlier Windows version will set .NET 2.0 as default instead of 4.x and the Web Applications will therefore not work/run.
