IIS by default is not installed on the system. So IIS has to be set up by you if you want to use it. Figuring out how to install IIS took a little time for me. There are two ways in which you can do it.1. Microsoft® Web Platform Installer (Web PI) - With help of Web PI you can install everything you need for web development in Windows. You will need administrator password and an active internet connection in order to proceed through Web PI. You can install IIS, Visual Studio Web Express, SQL Server 2008, .NET Framework and free web apps like Umbraco and WordPress (download and learn more about Web PI).2. Manual configuration - You will have to follow simple steps in order to set up IIS.
You will find snapshots below for the steps mentioned above.
If you use Web PI, select "Products", then "Server" and choose "Add" IIS 7.5 Express (Here it shows installed because on my system it is installed).
If you follow manual configuration. In Control Panel select encircled program.
