XP Web service extentions

I have an XP laptop that I run a website locally for demo purposes.  Some of the programs that I have loaded require that I load a web service extension.  I had someone help me set those up before.  I am now upgrading to a Win7 laptop and need to allow these extensions on the new laptop.  When I go into IIS Manager, I don't see the web service extension folder.  Where do I go to add a web service extension in XP or Win 7?

Can you explain what extension your are talking about?  The term 'Web Service Extensions' was first introduced with IIS 6, which is on Windows 2003 Server.  That is where you allow things like ASP.net, ASP, or some custom dll that your application needs to call.  On Windows XP (IIS 5.1), these extensions are allowed by default.  On Win 7, you would have to add them in the feature named 'ISAPI and CGI Restrictions' for your website.

Tray896,

For the record XP 64bit version came with IIS6.0 and not IIS 5.1 (as with XP 32 bit) so the poster could have used 'Web Service Extensions' with XP.

That is the "Windows XP Professional x64 Edition" version just to be clear.

But Tray answered you question IIS7.x has reanmed it all for some reason.

In IIS 7 it is done within the feature called 'ISAPI and CGI Restrictions.'
