Tried to get IIS loaded on a Windows XP SP2 machine.  When I try to connect to the localhost, I get the following error:  "computer is not running iis version 4 or higher".  I thought IIS 5 came with the os.  Does anyone know of a fix?

Windows XP comes with IIS 5.1 (or IIS 6.0 if you are running the x64 edition).

Where are you seeing this error?

Are you connecting with IE or woth some other client?

What else have you installed in IIS?

I'm seeing this error in the IIS Console when I try to connect to a machine (local or remote). We're running IE. I installed the default options when I installed IIS.

what did you do to install IIS?  I suggest remove it and reinstall.

Even I'm facing the same issue when I try to expand the IIS 6 under computer management.... I tried reinstalling it. Didn't work

Is there any place where I can download IIS 6 and install it...?

Thanks for your time...
