  • Unable to install???

    Apr 22, 2010 01:10 PM|jimmyborofan|LINK

    I have Win7 x64 with IIS7 installed, I have installed FastCGI and the Rewrite Rule module add ons, yet when I try to install the Admin pack (using the right version) I get 'Admin pack needs IIS to install' or a similar message, this happens when using the web install, AND the offline installer...


    Has anyone an  idea why this is happening?

    Did you try installing the asming pack using Microsoft Web platform Installer? WPI will install all the neccessary dependencies. On the page http://www.iis.net/download/administrationpack please click on install using Microsoft Web platform Installer.

    I noticed it is Windows 7. With IIS7.5 on Windows7, IIS Administration Pack installation integrated with IIS installation. You do not need to install admin pack individual. And you can also install IIS by using Web platform Installer. Thanks.
