I'm running XP Pro with IIS installed.  iis.msc doesn't appear in admin tools so i can't start the server.  I've tried adding it to the console but it doesn't appear in the "add/remove snap-in" list.  the *.msc file is in the right place.  I've uninstalled/reinstalled IIS with windows component wizard with the same result.

I'm at a loss as to where to go next.  Ideas?

Thanks, Mark

Are you on a network with a Domain Name Server? Do you have the TCP/IP protocol installed? What about connectivity utilities (Diagnostic commands: arp, hostname, ipconfig, lpq, nbtstat, netstat, ping, route, and tracert
Connectivity commands: finger, ftp, lpr, rcp, rexec, rsh, telnet, and tftp )

 Make sure that you have all the required software installed before you install the  IIS console:

OK...nothing has worked so far.  Followed above comments, those in Q_20649911 and the item in MS knowledge base.

So maybe this is where it gets ugly.  When I upgraded to MS Office 2003, the Business Contacts application installed the .NET Framework which, of course now shows up in the Admin Tools.  When I open the .NET config tool and look at "View Remoting Service Properties", I see there are two channels that have properties that can be config'd.  The first is 'http client (delay loaded)' with delayLoadAsClientChannel set to true.  The second is 'tcp client (delay loaded)' with same property set to true.  Also, when I look at .NET application restore I see mmc.exe listed as a managed appl. to be restored.  This can't be good in my book.

BTW germarti, all the above mentioned software is installed.

Try giving your ASPNET account a higher level permission to c:\windows\system32

so i just stripped all IIS out and re-installed it.  the iis.msc is now visible so to be fair i just split the points and the accepted answer was chosen arbitrarily.  hope no one feels slighted.

thanks, i still learned a few new tricks.
