I'm trying enable some IIS7 features using the Windows Features tool (OptionalFeatures.exe), also known as
Control Panel > Programs and Features > Turn Windows features on and off
After selecting features to install or uninstall I click OK, which brings up a "Please wait while your features are configured" dialog. I've let it run for up to three hours at a time, but the progress bar never moves from 0%. This doesn't seem to be directly related to IIS, since the same thing happens with any feature, big or small.
Looking at running processes in task manager, Windows Modules Installer (TrustedInstaller.exe) is running on high CPU and ever increasing memory usage, but nothing seems to happen. The same thing happens in the background when I try to install the IIS7 features using Microsoft Web Platform Installer instead of the Windows Features tool.
- I'm on 32-bit Vista Home Premium SP1, running as Admin with UAC disabled.
- I've run sfc.exe /scannow, and didn't find any problems with system files.
- I've tried a clean boot by disabling all non-microsoft services.
As an alternative solution, if anybody could tell me how to enable (classic) ASP support on IIS7 and/or get the IIS Management Console installed, that would also be great.
