Enable IIS in Windows 7

When I worked on my friend’s desktop, I just wanted to create a virtual directory. So I went to “Run” and typed “inetmgr”, then enter. Even though he had installed VS2010, but he did not installed/enabled IIS in local machine.  

I guess, IIS is disabled by default when you install Windows. So here I’m going to explain the steps how to install/enable IIS in Windows 7 system.

Step 1: 
Go to "Control panel" and select "Programs and Features" or simply type “appwiz.cpl” in run.

 
Step 2: In the left hand side, click on the link “Turn Windows features on or off”.
 

Step 3: As a result you got “Windows Features” popup in that check the check boxes as shown below.

 


Step 4: That’s it! Windows will automatically install it! Now you can access the IIS by typing the command “inetmgr” in Run.

 
 
Hope this was helpful for beginners!
 
Happy coding!
