My Windows 8 machine installed three updates last night, and then rebooted. When I logged back in this morning to continue working, I noticed that I could no longer access any web application I had in IIS (404 for every application URL). I looked further, and realized I got a 404 when trying to access
iisreset from an Administrator Command prompt, but got an error that:
'iisreset' is not recognized as an internal or external command
...so IIS is no longer installed?
I went to the Control Panel > Add/Remove Windows Features and noticed that Internet Information Services was now unchecked!
I've already started the process of re-adding IIS through Add/Remove Windows Features, but I'm still curious about the cause (and prevention of future occurrences). Has anyone else seen this issue?
The updates installed were:
- Update for Microsoft Lync 2013 (KB2760556) 64-Bit Edition
- Definition Update for Windows Defender - KB2267602 (Definition 1.145.2025.0)
- Security Update for Windows 8 for x64-based Systems (KB2807986)
