How do I install IIS on XP Professional?

Guest

Hi

I already have XP Professional on my machine. I need to install/enable IIS.
From the control panel I go to add/remove windows components. I dont see a
choice for installing/enabling IIS.

I also have the XP Professional CD with me but there also it doesn t show
IIS when i click on a optional installs or any other choice on the menu.

What am i missing?

Thanks

Installing IIS on Windows XP Pro

If you are running Windows XP Professional on your computer you can install
Microsoft's web server, Internet Information Server 5.1 (IIS) for free from
the Windows XP Pro installation CD and configure it to run on your system by
following the instructions below: -

1. Place the Windows XP Professional CD-Rom into your CD-Rom Drive.

2. Open 'Add/Remove Windows Components' found in 'Add/Remove Programs' in
the 'Control Panel'.

3. Place a tick in the check box for 'Internet Information Services (IIS)'
leaving all the default installation settings intact.

The problem is here -- I dont see a check box for IIS. How do I get to see
the list that would contain the choice for IIS.

There is no other way to see the list. Something is wrong with your setup if
it's not there.

Either someone set a Group Policy setting to disable installing
IIS or you are actually running Windows XP Home Edition.
Contact the Administrator that setup your computer.

Yeah there is a restriction in my organisation, which prevents this. But I
need to get around it. I have admin privileges on the machine and I can
remove or change permissions etc..
Where is this group policy defined? If there is a flag somewhere then I can
change it and then try the install..
and I have XP professional and not home edition .. thats for sure.

You might want to talk to the admin there. Bypassing security restrictions
can get one fired.

If your company or organization implemented a Group Policy,
possibly related to security, I would advise you to talk to your
IT department before attempting to override their decision.

If you have a company-owned computer, you cannot make any
changes to the Group Policy settings without their knowledge
or approval. Attempting to do otherwise may cause you to be
reprimanded or even terminated from employment.

I am not going to bypass the restriction with out permission. I will get the
permission to by pass the restriction from desktop support. But they will
still not do the installation for me. I will still have to do all the things
myself. that is why i need to know how its done.
I appreciate ur concern for my job :) Thanks

Not 100% sure but if the admin relaxes those restrictions I see no reason
why you shouldn't have the choice of installing IIS.
