Plesk installation fails on installing Plesk Website with the following output:

`MSI: Error! Critical action 'Configure Parallels Panel site...' failed:

The <configProtectedData> section in the "%windir%\system32\inetsrv\config\applicationHost.config" file is corrupted.


  1. Make a backup copy of the applicationHost.config file:

    xcopy "%windir%\system32\inetsrv\config\applicationHost.config "%windir%\system32\inetsrv\config\applicationHost.config_backup
  2. Open file, clear out "configProtectedData" section and save it.

  3. Run the command:

    cd "%windir%\System32\inetsrv"
    iissetup.exe /install SharedLibraries
  4. It will result with Failed = 0x80070005 output, this behavior is considered to be normal and encryption keys will be successfully recreated.
