Installing IIS on Windows Vista

If you are a developer using ASP.NET, one of the first things you’ll want to install on Vista is IIS (internet information server). Keep in mind that your version of Vista may not come with IIS. I’m using Vista Ultimate edition.

Go throw the following sequence;

Control Panel -> Programs -> Turn Windows features on or off -> expand the Internet Information Services tree node,
you can see that there are a lot of options beneath it. You will probably want to explore these options, because even if you click on IIS, some of the necessary options for doing development aren’t checked.

Go ahead and check the items you want, and click OK.

Navigate in your browser to localhost: you will see the following page ;

IIS 7 - home page

IIS 7 - home page

Now You have successfully install IIS on Vista……

Go to Run -> type in ‘inetmgr’ it will open the iis management console.

Start doing whatever you want …

Now Enjoy Happy Coding Time !!!!
