Default IIS Install

I am a new ASP and just tried to install IIS on my computer Windows XP Media Center. I went to add/Remove Windows Components and install IIS, but I can not go to http://localhost. It seems that I do not have DNS and TCP/IP install. Can you please help me how to install DNS and TCP/IP utility. According the Windows help file that I have to install to install IIS.

Your information is great appreciated

I am pretty sure you have DNS and TCP/IP installed (can you go to other sites on the internet?) if so then that is not your problem.

Thanks for the information,

what could be the problem?

I go to control Panel --> Administrator tools --> Internet Information Services then I see web site folder, but when I go to iis help, it does not open.

Any suggestions?

Thanks again,

This is apparently a common problem with Media Center, though I had trouble tracking down solutions. I did find this link which seemed like it might be worth a try.


Does this work?
