I'm trying to install Wordpress on Windows Server 2016 TP2, 10074 and WebMatrix 5.0 is demanding to install URL ReWrite. URLRewrite then says you must have IIS 7.0 or later. I've tried manually downloading URL ReWrite and I get the same message. So its not
WebMatrix causing the issue. As such I'm stuck installing Wordpress.
Apparently all the other pieces installed just fine. Only URL ReWrite is causing an issue.
Is there a work around for this issue? Is it possible to install Wordpress without the URL redirect?

It is a technical preview, so not everything is ready. Wait till a later release fixes this issue.

Change the following Registry value:
from 10 to 7
then install the URL Rewrite module and change the value back to 10
This is just fixing the installation, I haven't tested the module itself, but it seems not much has changed for IIS in Server 2016, so it should work.

Thank you. That did indeed do the trick.
