Hi,

i have installed iis4 with sp4 on my nt machine.
and installed it in c:\program files\inetsrv the standard
path of inetsrv is c:\winnt\system32\inetsrv now if i start
the mmc manager it gives the error it cannot find a file.
if i start the inetmgr from within c:\program files\inetsrv it says it can not find c:\winnt\system32\inetsrv\iis.msc wich is the wrong path it must be c:\program files\inetsrv.
so itt uses the default path but i installed it to an other i think this is a bug of the installation program but i want to change it so i can work with the manager.
where can i change the defautlt path of inetsrv?
pleaze give me a full disciption of where its at
like in the registery.

thanx

The inetmgr seems to not support LFN
my path was c:\Program Files\inetsrv\iis.mcs
in the link my path was c:\Program Files\inetsrv\iis.mcs
i changed it to c:\progra~1\inetsrv\iis.msc and now it works.

but i still need to know if there is a default wich you can set in the registery.

Easy to solve
Open the folder profiles under your windows NT Directory, select all Users\Programs\and the path to the shortcut for your Internet Service Manager.
If you right click on the shortcur for the Internet Service Manager, there should be under shortcut a entry target. In this entry first there is a path to the mmc and then there is the path to the iis.mcs. Be sure that this path is encluded with "
The reason is, that you have with program files a blank in the pathname, and the shortcut reads until the first blank
