I just installed Windows 7 Enterprise along with some development tools. I didn't see IIS (the management console) anywhere in the start menu. I went to Turn Windows Features On or Off and saw that indeed IIS was present. Even http://localhost/ responded. I even turned all IIS features off (uninstalled them) and back on (rebooting each time). I still don't get IIS on my start menu.

I also tried just launching MMC and adding the IIS snap-in, but that too, is absent.

How can I manage the IIS on my box?

Doh! I guess it's just an unchecked (and strangely non-default) feature: Internet Information Services -> Web Management Tools -> IIS Management Console.

I'd seen it before, but didn't think it was relevant as Web Management Tools suggests to me a web-based management interface. Misnomer I guess.

Protip: Start -> Run -> inetmgr

Bonus points for WinKey+R !

Install the Internet Information Services (IIS 7) from the Web Platform Installer 3.0. link: http://www.microsoft.com/web/downloads/platform.aspx Then, you would be able to find out the IIS Manager from the Administration Tools.
