I have a dev box at home running windows 7.  I have a msdn action pack developer subscription if that helps.  Is there any way to get iis on that machine?  I am doing some html 5 and I would like to view it on my phone and tablet at home and at work. I'd be happy with just the lan though.

I had server running for sharepoint dev and could easily do it through iis.  I am running the visual studio iis for debugging.  I don't want to switch to server and would like to keep this machine and just add iis.

if it's professional, enterprise or ultimate, IIS is included in windows 7 if you go to control panel -> programs and features -> turn windows features on and off

Your package comes with all version of Windows 7, except the home basic and starter edition


You did not mention which version you are running, but whatever the case you have the ability to enable and install this on you machine.

Go to Start > Control Panel > Programs
From the dialog box that opens, click on Turn Windows features on or off.

Great, I had no idea  that was there.  I tried typing iis in the start menu and nothing happened.

Do I need "Internet Information Services Hostable Web Core"?
