Hello Experts,

I'm trying to follow the instructions at:
http://chrislarson.me/content/chris-larson/installing-drupal-iis-microsoft-sql

Yet, I cannot get past the 2nd paragraph.  As you can see in my attached image, I don't get Internet Information Services to expand.  Any ideas?

If I go to localhost, I do get the IIS Welcome screen...just an FYI.
Using Windows Server 2008 Enterprise

Thanks!

Thats for windows 7, for windows server 2008 enterprise you would add the Web Server role to install IIS 7.

Here is a simple video:

From your screenshot, you already have the role installed.

Have you restarted the server?

What can you not expand?

Thank you!

It was the Add Role Services part that I needed, the video was very clear.
