Web Platform Installer crash when viewing Products or Applications

Today when I was trying to setup WordPress on my Windows 8 development machine the IIS Manager would crash with an System.OutOfMemoryException exception.

Exception:System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException: Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation.<br> ---&gt; System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException: An exception occurred during the operation, making the result invalid.<br>Check InnerException <span style="color: #0000ff">for</span> exception details. ---&gt; System.OutOfMemoryException: Out of memory.

After doing a quick Bing search turn up this article on the IIS.NET Forums and after clicking “Get New Web Platform Components” problem solved.
