There is an option in the Web Platform Installer 3.0 version that is "IIS 7 Recommended Configuration". The information given about it does not give much detail. Does anyone know and understand what exactly this option does to IIS on the machine?

Hello and thanks for posting!
The IIS 7 Recommended Configuration in WebPI v3 is the equivilent of the IIS 7 components that were installed automatically in WebPI v2 when you installed an application. For example, in WebPI v2 and on a clean Win7 machine, if you selected to install DotNetNuke,
WebPI would automatically bring along a set of IIS components so your application would function. WebPI v3 does the same thing, but now we've added an entry to allow you to easily install our recommended set of IIS7 components without installing an application
For reference, here is the list of components
You can also still install any IIS 7 component seperately in the "Server" node of the Products tab in WebPI v3
Hope this helps

Hi, a great new feature for Web Platform Installer would be for each item to have a hyperlink to a page that describes the given item in detail. It would be a big time-saver.
