Why can't SQL Server 2005 standard detect IIS at setup
Posted on 2011-10-03
I am attempting to install SQL Server 2005 standard edition on a Windows 7 computer. I'm using an old version as others are also working on the databases and we they haven't changed versions yet. When I attempt to install I am informed that IIS is not installed and the linked message says:
Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) is either not installed or is disabled. IIS is required by some SQL Server features. Without IIS, some SQL Server features will not be available for installation. To install all SQL Server features, install IIS from Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel or enable the IIS service through the Control Panel if it is already installed, and then run SQL Server Setup again.
IIS 7.5 is installed and I can load localhost in a browser window. What should I do so the install sees IIS?
