I would like to install the inet manager for Windows 7, but I get a message that I need to install the IIS management console first, and I can't figure out how.

So, how do I install the IIS Management Console on my Windows 7 Home Basic edition machine?

Home Basic and Starter editions does not have IIS Management Console. –  Lex Li Jun 5 '10 at 13:07

Now you can also use WebMatrix which includes IIS Developer Express and will give you a simpler Management experience and the full functionality of IIS 7.5 even for Starter and Basic editions (including XP). Its only 8 MB and free:

Apart from upgrading Windows, you can also use the free Apache web server.
