Make sure that you install it before Visual Studio, and also make sure you enable these Windows features first:

Common HTTP Features

  • Static Content
  • Default Document
  • HTTP Redirection
  • Directory Browsing

Application Development

  • ASP.Net
  • ISAPI Extension
  • ISAPI Filters


  • Windows Authentication


  • IIS 6 WMI
  • IIS Metabase

Then install SP2 at least, but preferably SP3
