500 error may occur under four circumstances and they are,

1] ASP Version: First check whether you have installed ASP or not. Then verify the version of ASP. The available ASP version's are '1.5/2.0/3.0/3.5/4.0'. If you are using the version below 4.0, then you may face '500 Error'. So upgrade your ASP to the latest available version to avoid 500 error.

2] MVC: Check whether you have installed the MVC version 2.0. If not, you need to install the MVC 2.0 to get rid of '500 Error'.
