Installing IIS 6.0 on Windows XP Professional


B

Bill Jasiulewicz

I'm trying to add IIS 6.0 to my WXP Prof system in order to start doing .NET
development with web pages and I want a personal web server for testing.

I keep getting this message:

Windows XP Setup

Setup could not copy one or more files. The specific
error code is 0x4b8. Press OK to continue or Cancel
to stop setup and try again. If you continue the components
may not function properly.

If I click OK, then IIS doesn't work and IIS.MSC was never installed. Even
when I try to copy IIS.MSC and the other IIS.* files from another system, or
extract/expand them from the CD, IIS still doesn't work.

I am running with Service Pack 2 and installing from a WXP CD with SP2
included.

You cannot install IIS6.0 on XP. It's part of Windows 2003 Server and can
only be installed on that system.

You can install IIS5.1 which is part of Add/Remove Windows Components in
Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel.

IIS 6.0 cannot be installed in Windows XP Pro. It is only
available with Windows Server 2003.

Ok, sorry - you're right, I "assumed" the IIS component on the XP CD was
6.0, but it must be 5.1.

I am just trying to use the Add/Remove Windows Components (appwiz.cpl) to
add "Internet Information Services (IIS)"

I've Googled the problem (searching the Internet and newsgroups) and it
seems that there are a number of people that are having this problem - even
back to 2003.

There has been no clear and consistent solution to the problem.

Some have just re-installed, some have made changes to C:\Windows\Security
and others have removed some components, like Games, while adding IIS.

I've tried all the possible solutions I've found so far and I am hoping that
there is a more clear solution by now.
