I'm facing an odd issue with the IIS Manager on Windows 7 (x64).
At home, I have Win7 Professional, and when I check my IIS manager icon in the start menu, I see it links to
When I launch this from the command line, it works like a charm.
At work, however, I have Windows 7 Enterprise (x64), and when I check my link in the start menu, the entry is exactly the same. If I click on it - it works like a charm.
Now if I'd like to launch it from the command line (cmd.exe or TakeCommand), however - the file just isn't there - a
shows a number of files, including a "inetmgr6.exe" - but no "inetmgr.exe" - and of course, I can't launch it either :-(
Strangely enough, when I look at the directory
%windir%\system32\INetSrv in Windows Explorer or Windows Powershell, I SEE the
INetMgr.exe file and I can launch it - no problem.
**** is going on here? How can I find the
INetMgr.exe from my classic command line and launch it from there??
UPDATE: ok, some updates. On my work laptop, the
INetMgr.exe file appears to really be located in a directory called
c:\windows\syswow64\inetsrv (I'm recalling from memory, so don't quote me on the directory name - something like that). I can see this if I search for it in e.g. Powershell or Windows 7 Explorer.
However, from a "classic" command line like cmd.exe, it appears to be in
c:\windows\system32\inetsrv ..... hmmm.... trouble is - even though I now know where the file really is, I cannot access that directory from my classic command line - not even if I'm running cmd.exe as admin with elevated privileges....... so I know where the file is, but that still doesn't solve my problem :-(
