I installed Debug Diagnostic Tool to find what was causing a webservice to crash. After hooking up on w3wp, IIS started to crash on any request and stop the application pool. The debugger tool just crashed as well, so obvisously id did something wrong. Anyways, I uninstalled the debugger tool, but the problem keeps persisting. I got this error in the event log:
Application pool 'DefaultAppPool' is being automatically disabled due to a series of failures in the process(es) serving that application pool.
...and if I restart the DefaultAppPool, it just dies on the next request. So I did the following:
- uninstalled IIS using add/remove windows components
- deleted c:\inetpub\ just to be sure.
- installed IIS using add/remove windows components
The problem still persists after these steps.
How can get a "Fresh IIS 6 install" without reinstalling the os? I am running XP Pro x64, if that's important.
