How to open IIS console from "Start-Run" menu
  I love opening computer management console from "Start-run menu" by typing compmgmt.msc from Start menu-Run , type compmgmt.msc
But that opens all consoles. Is there any way I can just open IIS console using any kind of command like IIS.msc or something?

Thanks in advance

By typing IIS.MSC no, you actually have to type the path to the snap-in so you have to run this command to start the IIS MMC:

mmc %systemroot%\system32\inetsrv\iis.msc

or just

Why not just copy the graphical shortcut to the IIS management console from administrative tools directly to your start menu. Then instead of "Start -> Run...type type type type" you can just do "Start -> IIS Console". Better yet you could even assign a windows shortcut key combination to the iis console shortcut and start it up with a single key chord. I have more than half a dozen commonly used programs runnable at my fingertips.

Or you can type


directly and bypass the MMC which will be loaded eventually anyway....

Hey Just type InetMgr as the run prompt

I'm on the last chapter of Beg. ASP.Net 4 (deploying your site, stuck on pg. 715).

I'm typing: inetmgr and I'm not getting anything. I've done a search for INetMgr w/ no results. The exersizes in the preceeding sections seemed to work fine: Turn windows features on or off (IIS > WWW Services > App Dev. > checked asp.net), then the 'aspnet_regiis - i' command took fine (logged in as admin).

FYI: I have Win Vista Home Premium SR2.

Hi there,

Sounds like IIS is not installed completely or correctly. Which options did you choose when installing IIS other than ASP.NET? Did you also install the Management tools?

Do you have something like IIS Manager or Internet Information Services Manager in your Start Menu or Administrative tools section of Control Panel?


pcesoft June 24th, 2012 03:13 PM

Thanks, Imar! Yes, I didn't know to load the management tools. It's now there.. Thanks again,

I finished the last chapter in beg. asp.net 4 book, however, after setting the default website / default.aspx in inetmgr, and after going through setting the security levels for the Release folder, when I open up http://localhost, it correctly opens default.aspx, however, none of the styling is showing, and the graphics in the banner is not showing either. All the words are there, and the databases appear to work, as I could login / add a new album, etc.

Any ideas?

This sounds like a permissions issue to me, where anonymous users are not allowed to access the Themes folders.

How did you configure security at the disk level? Did you enable Forms authentication in web.config? Can you post the code for web.config?

Does this happen with the book's source from Chapter 19 as well?

If none of this helps, can you post a) the full HTML for the page in the browser and b) the address of the page in the browser?
