SQL Server Compact SP2 Server Tools failing to install on Windows 10 x86 and x64 due tp IIS requirements RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've already read another post in this group about the same topic, but the solution is not working for us.

    Whenever we try to install the Microsoft SQL Server Compact 3.5 SP2 Server Tools on Windows 10, 32 or 64 bit, we never go further the requirements check step, where the status for the IIS requirement is "Error" and the message states that IIS < 5.1 must be installed, or either having IIS > 7 requires the Backward Compatibility Components, which I have installed.

    We have tried both the SP2 RTW version...

    ...and the Cumulative Update 7 as well:

  • Hi Alberto.

    I managed to unblock the IIS check with the following registry hack:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\InetStp]
    "MajorVersion"=dword:00000008

    (The original value was: dword:0000000a)

    Please let me know if you succeed, as I do not have a SQL Server instance on my Windows 10 tablet, and therefore is blocked on the replication components requirement.

  • Hi Erik,

    Tried in both 32 and 64 bit OSes and that did the trick in both versions, thanks! :)

    We have some customers and partners who won't be very comfortable with this solution and would prefer an updated installer, but I guess they are out of luck. If you have any chance to escalate this issue, please do :)

    Regards,
