On my Windows 7 machine, I've just installed IIS and it should work, but doesn't!

Well, finding it anyway... and when I run inetmgr.exe the command prompt doesn't recognize it.

C:\Windows\system32>inetmgr.exe
'inetmgr.exe' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

What should I do to fix this to ensure IIS works properly? Also, the IIS Manager doesn't appear in the start menu.

Should I re-install it from scratch?

thanks

inetmgr.exe is in c:\windows\system32\inetsrv, which isn't in the system path. So just do a cd inetsrv first. In your start mean search, type in 'IIS'. If it doesn't show, then it sounds like it's not fully installed for some reason. Going through the installer again will hopefully resolve that.
