How to Install IIS on Vista®

The way is bit different from Windows XP, to install IIS on Vista

Go to your control panel then Programs then open Programs and features from right pane tasks select Turn windows features on or off.
Or
Go to your control panel then switch to Classic view then open Programs and features from right pane tasks select Turn windows features on or off.

Hint
Till now, this step is equivalent to what we was doing in Windows XP (Control panel, add or remove program then add or remove windows components).

To install IIS, select Internet Information Service, then press Ok, Congrats you did and you do not need to have your Windows CD in your CD room.

To configure your IIS
Go to your control panel then System and Maintenance then open Administrative Tools then select IIS Manager. (You may find IIS6 Manager, this indicates that you’ve installed IIS 7 and IIS 6 and for each its configuration)
Or
Go to your control panel then switch to Classic view then open Administrative Tools then select IIS Manager. (You may find IIS6 Manager, this indicates that you’ve installed IIS 7 and IIS 6 and for each its configuration)
