    Hi All, i just installed the iis7 in windows xp (originally iis5) when I opened the IIS and try to connect my laptop from iis/ localhost, it comes up with the following error message: There was an error when trying to connect. Do you want to retype your credentials and try again? Details: Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.Web.Administration, version 7.0.0.0, Culture = netural, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35" or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified. When I answer yes, it asks me for my credential and password. What is the credential and password? how can i get it ? I tried my user name and it doesn't work. Can someone please help me? Thanks

    There is no IIS 7 for Windows XP (IIS Express supports XP, but it is not IIS 7). If you are looking for IIS 7, please upgrade to Windows 7.

     The software you install is IIS Manager to manage IIS servers remotely.

     It is Not IIS server.
