IIS restart error on IIS7.5 in Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • User1208910019 posted


    I am new to ASP.NET and just finished installing IIS on my Windows 7 laptop. But I am unable to start IIS by right-clicking on "Default Web Site" and selecting Manage website->restart. I get the error "Service WAS was not found on computer '.'."

    Also, when I hover over Default web site tree node on left side, I get the message "Default web site (unknown)"

    Please help me in starting IIS successfully and going ahead with my ASP.NET learnings.

    You said you just finished installing IIS to the laptop... are you sure 'Windows Process Activation Service' (WAS) is also installed? Cool

    It will show under Control Panel -> Programs and Features -> Turn windows features on an off.
