In Windows Vista, Internet Information Services is included in the primary installation, but not enabled automatically. To turn on IIS in Vista, follow these steps. Start off in the Control panel. Go to the Start menu and select Control panel and from there click on Programs. In the Program section look under the category Program and Features and click Turn Windows features on or off. It will take a few moments for the Windows Features panel to come to life.
It first scans your computer to find out what features are turned on and which are turned off. In the Windows Features list, locate Internet Information Services and open it up. Don't install the entire category. You will be installing a lot of software that you don't need. Go to the category World Wide Web Services and click that entire category. And then go to Application Development Features, and minimally turn on .NET Extensibility and ASP. NET. If you also want to use older versions of the Microsoft Server Software, you can turn on ASP or Active Server Pages. Also go to Web Management Tools and turn on the IIS Management Console, IIS Management Scripts and Tools and the IIS Management Service. Finally go to Common Http Features and make sure that all the options are selected under that category.
You can turn on certain other features such as, Basic Authentication under Security, Request Filtering, URL Authorization and Windows Authentication, if you need these features. Click OK and then take a break. It will take Windows Vista a few minutes to complete the installation that you have requested. When you are done with this part of the installation, the next step would be to download and install the .NET Framework. And I'll describe that in a separate video.
