    Trouble installing IIS on Win2k workstation.


    I have to install IIS on my workstation at work. I'm running Windows 2000 - *not* Server. Start > Settings > Control Panel > Add/Remove... > A/R Windows Components > IIS.

    The problem is, it installs most of the way, but then about a quarter inch before completion, it hangs. My computer doesn't freeze, and I can move the window, it just... stops installing. I have to go to Task Manager to end the install manually.

    At this point, it's only partially installed, because when I go back to add IIS, I see it has some things installed. So, I uninstall it (which runs fine), reboot my machine (to be on the safe side), and try again. Same thing.

    Currently, I'm in a training class, so I logged out of the network, logged in as admin on my own machine, and I'm running it again. In the meantime, any suggestions as to what I'm doing wrong?

    If the user you were logged in as wasn't a local administrator, you probably are on the right track by reinstalling as the local administrator user.

    Turn off any Antivirus script-blocking and/or firewalls while you're installing.
