Install Business Objects XI R2 on Windows Server 2008

adammet04 used Ask the Experts™
I am trying to find some information on installing Business Objects XI R2 on windows server 2008 using  IIS7.0, I get to a point where i want to choose an IIS install for the web server, but the option is greyed out, i have installed dot net 1.1 on the server and assigned a website an application pool which uses 1.1 but no luck.

Would i have to install IIS 6.0 on the server..i dont seem to be able to find the right information.

Thanks for any help that can be provided.

I have since found out that Not only is Business Objects XI R2 not supported on Windows 2008, but you cannot install it either due to the NTLMSSP service not being installed in Windows 2008 (Required for Tomcat, but not sure if it is required for IIS)

Actually you can get it to work.  You just need to remove the dependency of the CMS on NTLMSSP in the registry.  But I have no idea on the real life effects of doing this.  Still it seems to work fine
