IIS 5.1 is part of XP pro and Windows 2000 and comes with the install media. It is not available to the newer platforms (Vista, Windows 7, Server 2003/2008).

In order to install it, go to "Add Remove Programs" on the control panel, select "Windows components" and then make sure IIS is selected.

The XP disc is required. – Anonymous Mar 30 '10 at 11:29
That's what I meant by "install media". It is the media (CD) that windows XP is installed from. So yes, the XP cd is needed. – Oded Mar 30 '10 at 11:34

You can't. It's only for Windows 2000, and ships on the Windows 2000 media and service packs.

Choose Add/Remove Windows Components in your Windows 2000 installation. If you have a version of Windows greater than Windows 2000, you're out of luck.

IIS is bundled with Windows XP Professional (if you are using Windows XP Professional).

Else, visit Microsoft IIS site (
