What about running WordPress on IIS ?

We have an existing wordpress website. The goal is to use IIS to serve the site instead of Apache and MAMP (which currently runs on another machine, works fine)
I was able to get a basic wordpress site up from scratch, but there seems to be 2 bugs, on the installer it asks for the MySQL admin pwd before its been setup, and then there is a 2M file upload size, and we have 5-7MB files, then the Import xml file is
even larger. I got around uploading themes by placing the theme.zip in place. but no luck importing the other site by xml.
Other people have asked and the usual thing is: change the setting in php.ini but there is NONE. in the WebMatrix settings I checked everything, and enabled hidden files. tried setting the variable for upload size, no it stays at 2M
But is there any other solution? we are launching a brand new site that we hope to be active and supported for at least 5 years, more likely over 10 years.
Can anyone comment on whether it will be safe to setup a new website based on wordpress, hosted by IIS on a Windows2012 Server? We also have 2008 Server. I read a Forum post saying support ends in 2017?
What about WordPress on IIS? My platform of choice is asp.net/mvc but this site was done many years ago and is now running on wordpress, we are upgrading it with a new theme and more content

I think there is no other solution.
The webmatrix will stop supporting in 2017, I recommend you use the latest visual studio core:
wordpress or webmatrix? I'm a bit confused about how did you host asp.net website on wordpress while wordpress should be only specific for PHP.
