IIS is Gone; Can't re-install IIS

P: n/a
I screwed up somehow and IIS has disappeared from my system.

Settings/Control Panel/Add/Remove Programs/Add/Remove Windows Components/
won't install IIS. It seems to think it's already there and that I want to
remove it. In any case, I have run the wizard several times and the state
of my system remains the same.

In particular:
Settings/Control Panel/Administrative Tools/ does not show a snap-in for
Trying to run the MMC console and start the snap-in that way says that
it's not there

Does anyone have a solution short of reinstalling the entire known universe
plus patches?

Thanx in advance,

Hello Jim,

Thanks for your post. I'd like to share the following information with you:

1. What's your operating system, Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003, etc?
Did you apply any corresponding Windows Service Pack?

2. Please verify whether the IIS services are installed by the following
a. Right click the My Computer icon on the desktop, and then click Manage.
b. In the Computer Management dialog box, expand Services and Applications.
c. Double-click Services.
d. Check if IIS Admin Service exists.

3. I suggest that you can remove IIS and then reinstall it.
a. Make sure you log on as a user of Administrator group.
b. Go to Settings/Control Panel/Add/Remove Programs/Add/Remove Windows
Components, uncheck "Internet Information Services (IIS)", and click "Next"
to remove IIS.
c. Restart Windows, and reinstall IIS in Add/Remove Windows Components.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Have a nice day!
