To enable FastCGI do the following:

Add the CGI Role Service to IIS.

 CGI Role
Once you've added CGI, you can go into IIS manager and create Handler Mappings.  If you need FastCGI for PHP, it will create the handler mapping for you.

 Handler Mapping
You should be aware however that some things like PHP which rely on fastcgi will not work if PHP is 32 bit (which it is on Windows), and the server is 64 bit.  PHP will only work with fastcgi if the server, and consequently, IIS, is 32 bit.

You won't see anything that says Fastcgi except in the module mapping.  When you click "Add Module Mapping" you should see the module "FastCgiModule" in the drop down list for Module, as per my second screenshot.

Ignore the CGI icon.  Go into Handler Mapping and edit or add a new Handler Mapping which will use FastCGI.

you need to install the administration pack for the same

Also check out the below URL for the PHP fast-cgi setup
