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
IIS
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,

JimT

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
steps:
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!
