I have enabled the iis components for the first time on this machine, from control panel->add software->windows components, and rebooted.
When I attempt to start the "Default Web Site" (which shows as 'Default Web Site (Stopped)' ) from inetmgr nothing happens.. no errors, nothing in the event log. Regmon and Filemon show no obvious errors.
I've confirmed that nothing is running on port 80 and have tried changing the local port (8080, 8081 etc.,) with no effect.
Further info --
I have removed the install, rebooted, added it back in, rebooted ... still not working.
I have visual studio 2008, SQLServer 2008 installed.
