Longhorn Feb. CPT + FastCGI - Error 80070425 RRS feed

  • Question

  • User1011611240 posted


    I am trying to install the IIS 7 FastCGI Module on Longhorn Feb. CPT this is what I get when I try to install it: 

    D:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\IIS7-FastCGI-TechPreview2-x86>fcgisetup.exe /inst
    Stopping IIS services ...
    Error: (null) (HRESULT 80070425)

    Also, even if I manually stop the service and run the installer I get the same error.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks a lot,

    Hi Will,

    I'm guessing the installer depends on an optional service or a service has hung. What does "sc query iisadmin" and "sc query w3svc" say?

    Hi Jearden,

    Please could you share the output of "sc query iisadmin" and "sc query w3svc" on your machine?

    Yes very strange:

    D:\Users\Administrator>sc query iisadmin
    [SC] EnumQueryServicesStatus:OpenService FAILED 1060:

    The specified service does not exist as an installed service.

    D:\Users\Administrator>sc query w3svc

    SERVICE_NAME: w3svc

    Hi Will,

    For some reason the tech preview installer assumes iisadmin service is installed and breaks when it is not. The workaround is to install "IIS 6 Metabase Compatibility" before running the setup.

    Yeah, thanks. Just been too busy to test as much as I had liked.

     Running Longhorn Beta 3 now though and I see fastcgi is built it when you enable cgi support. Excellent! :D

     Take Care,
