    Hello...

    I installed the iis8 component of windows 8 and it's running (localhost brings up the default page in c:\inetpub\wwwroot), but I can't figure out how to open the iis manager to make changes.

     Ok...

    Apparently, the "Turn Windows Features On" screen didn't install everything.  I went back into it and there was a bunch of iis components that were still unchecked.

    Interestingly enough, it installed enough to work, just not manage.

    Hi

    I have the same problem, we should report it to Microsoft although there is no effect because they knew it before they release this developer preview. i have tested the inetmgr.exe, the were no result.

     

    regards,

    I reformatted, last night, and put xp back on.

    I won't be able to post any logs, although someone else is welcome to.

    On another note, I installed IIS on my windows 7 machine, at work, and a similar thing happened.  I just clicked the IIS checkbox and it checked it as a square (instead of a check).  There were a bunch of checkboxes that weren't checked, underneath.

    Hi @ JJ,

    So your system at home it back to Windows XP.

    So the current thread is still Windows 8 and IIS 8 Manager.

    You have Windows 7 at work and installed the IIS 7.5 Features and have problems with IIS Manager.

    The Windows 7 machine at work what are the User Access Permissions & Settings (UAC) ?

    Do you access the Windows 7 machine at work using Remote Desk Top ?

    If you install IIS manually through the Control Panel, you also have to install the Management Console.

    Control Panel/Windows Features/Internet Information Services/Web Management Tools/IIS Management Console

    Then in the desktop, right-click "Computer" and choose Manage and IIS will show up under Services.

    Or go to the new Start screen and type:  IIS

     

     

    IIS 8 install console manage

    If typing "inetmgr" in the Run (crtl + r) window doesn't work, you need to add the "IIS Management Console" under Windows Features / Internet Information Services / Web Management Tools.
