Check whether IIS is installed or not

iis

I am trying to create a Local IIS Website using ASP.NET.

When I click on New -----> Website and select the type as HTTP and from the dialog box if I select the option as LOCAL IIS WEBSITE I am getting a message as "IIS not installed on this computer"

When I checked in the Control Panel---->Add or remove programs ---->Add or remove windows components. The Option Internet Information Service is already checked marked.

But when I click on the Control Panel ---> Administrative Tools, I dont find the option as Internet Information Service.

I also have the root directory as C:\Inetpub\WWWRoot.

And when I give the following command in the VS command Prompt

aspnet_regiis.exe -i

It is giving the message as finished installing ASP.NET

Can any one help me in identifying whether IIS is installed in my system or not?

Please help me out!

Best Solution

go to Start->Run type inetmgr and press OK. If you get an IIS configuration screen. It is installed, otherwise it isn't.

You can also check ControlPanel->Add Remove Programs, Click Add Remove Windows Components and look for IIS in the list of installed components.

EDIT


To Reinstall IIS.

Control Panel -> Add Remove Programs -> Click Add Remove Windows Components
Uncheck IIS box

Click next and follow prompts to UnInstall IIS. Insert your windows disc into the appropriate drive.

Control Panel -> Add Remove Programs -> Click Add Remove Windows Components
Check IIS box

Click next and follow prompts to Install IIS.
