    IIS not found in Windows Components

    I am trying to install IIS on a windows 2000 professional SP4 box but when I get to the add/remove windows components I do not see IIS on the list. Have any of you guys seen something similar to this? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance

    Are you on a domain? It is possible to prevent IIS through the use of group policy. Though, I'm unsure if it'll actually remove the option from add/remove windows components. I have not tested it.

    I just remembered a neat little gem. It may help here too..

    Edit (with notepad) c:\windows\inf\sysoc.inf
    Under the [components] section there's a list of individual parts of windows. Yes, the things you see in Add/Remove Windows Components.
    Look for lines with HIDE and remove the hide but make sure you leave the commas!
