But in terms of how to uninstall it -
Never used XP home, but assuming that it's something like every other Windows...
Control Panel -> Add or Remove Programs -> Add/Remove Windows Components

I am a loud man with a very large hat. This means I am in charge

Hi Guys,

Man, if that's true that really sucks! :(

However... I do have the console - when I go to the RUN and type in "MMC" it appears and seems to be 100% there (no IIS.msc tho?!).

If there is anywhere to d/load the file I could see if the XP Home disability is true.

BTW - Thanks to you both for replying so quick. I wasn't expecting to get such a speedy response from a thread that's nearly year old.

BTW2 - RealDHelix, how're your ASP skills now, a year after you started? It looks like a nice language to code in - most put me to sleep?!

Yes, IIS doesn't run on Windows XP Home, you need Pro or a Windows Server edition.

The MMC is just Microsoft's generic Management Console. Other system services (user management, services, event viewer etc etc) all use this console. MMC.exe is the "wrapper" application, in which you can load individual consoles like iis.mmc.

A quicker way for the IIS Manager is to select Start | Run and then type inetmgr. That will start the IIS MMC if you have it available on your system.

I tried the "inetmgr" in the Win RUN command, and it didn't work. Bugger!

You know what that means?!?

That means that I'm gonna have to go and learn how to code ASP using my old, relegated PC that has Win 2k on it! It's now in my daughters room and full of stuff like Barbie and Pajama Sam games (it's now our kids PC as I got a great new Win XP Home PC. ;)

Anyhew, thanks for all your help and I 'spose I'll just have to go retro Win 2k stylie?!

SO I'm having a trouble with the MMC. Everytime I try to add the iis.msc I get an error. What's wrong?
