1. ## IIS not found in Windows Components

Hey,
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

2. 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.

3. I will check that tomorrow and see if that is the problem. I will let you know. Thanks for your reply

4. 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!

5. SirDice, that was exactly what was happening. Thanks for the knowledge.
