A bizarre problem occurred to me today. I tried to install IIS on a Windows XP computer, which is also part of a Windows domain. I followed the usual procedure:
- Go to "Add/Remove Programs"
- select "Add/Remove Windows components"
- Select IIS
Install procedes without a problem. However, when I go to http://localhost after install, I get the error: "You are not authorized to view this page". I expected the default IIS Welcome page here :(
Any idea what may cause this? I'm logged in as a domain user with local admin rights, can that have something to do with it?
ps: I'm a total noob to IIS. Just trying to install it on my pc to learn myself asp.net development.
pps: It's Win XP Pro SP3 to be exact
