Freezes on "Installing IIS components"

    Question

  • I already have VS 2012 Express on my Win 8 machine as well as SQL Server 2012 express; was just trying to install MS Office Developer Tools for 2012 Preview and the Web Platform Installer just gets to "Installing IIS Components [1 of 14]" and just hangs there forever.

    Any suggestions?

  • Managed to solve it by

    1. Rebooting laptop (it automatically had 3 updates to make -- not sure if that was IIS related or not)

    2. Re-launching the Web Platform Installer and clearing the cache on one of the early screens prior to install.
