  • How-To install Microsoft IIS Server on Windows 7 ?

    According to Microsoft Technet, you can install IIS on Windows 7 home editions : http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc73

    I am not familiar with Windows 7 Home Basic upgrade capabilities. You could check if it includes Windows Anytime Upgrade (click start, type: Anytime Upgrade > hit Enter) follow the on screen wizard and enter your Windows 7 Professional product key.

    According to the Windows Anytime Upgrade site, only Windows 7 Starter, Home Premium and Professional supports it.

  • Let’s quickly install this service with the help of given steps:
    STEP 1. Insert the Windows 7 Ultimate or Windows 7 Professional DVD into your DVD-Rom Drive.
    STEP 2. Navigate to Start > Control Panel > Programs.
    STEP 3. From the dialog box that appears, click on Turn Windows features on or off.
    STEP 4. This opens another dialog box that displays a list of many Windows related services.
    STEP 5. Check the box for ‘Internet Information Services (IIS)‘ leaving all the default installation settings intact. If you would like to install additional services, then expand each option and select them.
    STEP 6. Once IIS is installed on your system you can view your home page in a web browser by typing ‘http://localhost’ you can type computer name instead of local host into the address bar of your web browser.


    But sir ji,

                My laptop has Windows 7 Home Basic edition.When I follow above these steps and When I wrote http://localhost in the browser then error is occurred.

  • 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.

  • What does basic feature means?

    Will I be able to run my .net apps, like host a website (ASP.net & C#)?

  • According to this page http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc753473.aspx , IIS on Windows 7 Starter and Windows 7 Home Basic does not offer basic features like static content publishing or asp.net pages. It offers features like HTTP Errors or HTTP Redirection. That is probably not enough for your usage.

    My guess is, that Windows 7 Home Premium is the minimum for regular IIS usage.
