IIS7 install problem on Win7 x64...
Posted on 2010-08-21
I cannot seem to install IIS7 correctly on my ASUS G73J laptop which is running Win7 x64 Ultimate.
When I go to Control Panel and enable "Turn Windows Features on or off" and enable IIS, everything seems fine. I can pull up the welcome page using htp://localhost with no problem.
But, I cannot find or launch the IIS msc snap-in. When I try and launch the iis.msc using inetmgr from the search box, it is never launched or found.
I had read that Eset's NOD32 can cause problems with the install, so I disabled the antivirus before trying an install and I still have the same issues.
A search for inetmgr.exe only shows it in th C:\Windows\winsxs directory - not where I'd expect to see a runnable executable.
What the hell is going on? I've been fighting with this shit for over an hour and cannot seem to get this simple damned thing to work.
