By default, IIS is not installed on Windows 7, but it's easy to get IIS installed:http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc731911.aspx. An alternative would be the new IIS Express (http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2010/06/28/introducing-iis-express.aspx), which is installed with the Web Matrix (http://www.microsoft.com/web/webmatrix/).

when you goto start menu and type inetmgr.exe it should be visible in the list. If not then something wrong with your installation or that file has been deleted.



Here's a different link that includes step-by-step directions:  http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/28/install-iis-7-on-windows-vista-and-windows-7/.   IIS will install on Home Basic, but will include only limited, basic features.
