IIS installation problems

Installing IIS into Windows 10(and even Windows Server) by just selecting a top-level Windows Feature does not install all sub-features by default.  If there are any features that are required that didn't get installed/enabled, that might be the cause.

Per-Ake, you may already know, but just in case, I'll ask it anyway: Did you select the top-level IIS feature or did you install more sub-features for IIS?  The ISAPI Extensions and ISAPI Filters features are not also enabled when the top level IIS feature is enabled(along with none of the other Application Development Features).

Rod, I have a recipe that I know worked for Windows Server 2012R2 and SP v2, but I don't know if it works for Windows 10 or SP v3 yet.  Windows 10 doesn't seem to support the PowerShell Install-WindowsFeature cmdlet anyway.  The Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature might work, but by the time you look that up and how it might be used, it may just be easier to open up Control Panel, choose "Turn Windows features on or off", and check all the boxes for IIS.

That would surprise me.  But a cut down version of IIS not exporting everything wouldn't.

To reduce the footprint or what needs testing - does the isapi plugin load?  This might prove difficult since you will need to configure a whole bunch of stuff in IIS.

Also , just to save me time - is there a recipe somewhere to get IIS installed in Win10?
