DotNetNuke Installation Question! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone,

    I am new to DotNetNuke and trying to set up a design space with DotNetNuke software.  I successfully installed the DotNetNuke software onto my Home Premium Window Vista desktop, but on the next step which I need to find "IIS Manager" within "Administration Tools" to installed, "IIS Manager" is no where to be found.  If anyone have any suggestion please let me know at AhaDiscounts@hotmail.com.  I am very appreciated.  Everyone have a great day!

  • Hi Phong,

    The answer to this question is very easy, IIS is not installed in Windows Vista Home Premium.

    Follow the steps described in the following KB article and you should be good to go!


    Good luck,

  • Thanks Filip,

    I was successfully installed IIS Management.  I then continued on the next step in creating a Virtual Directory like the note below mentions, but the steps that two links below listed do not match with what I am seeing on my computer as I was following it.... I am afraid of making mistake(s) that may cause further damage down the line, application-wise.  As you can tell I am not really an IT person.  Overall, thank you very much for all your helps Filip.  You have a great day!


    Web Application:
    Launch the IIS Management Console (Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools) and expand the tree for “Default Web Site.” Create a new Virtual Directory named “DotNetNuke” pointing to the C:\DotNetNuke folder. You may choose to name your Virtual Directory something else (if you do so, adjust the instructions in the “DotNetNuke Wizard” step accordingly).
    More information on creating a Virtual Directory in IIS is available here:
