Solution to : Can't Install IIS on Windows XP SP 2

Solution 1:

1. Run "esentutl /g %windir%\security\database\secedit.sdb" to see if the DB is corrupted.

2. If so, follow KB 278316;en-us;278316

3. Reboot if necessary

Solution 2:

1. Create an empty folder on your harddrive called something like "c:\WinXp" (name doesn’t really matter. Just make sure it is empty).

2. Copy the i386 folder off your original WinXP CD into your new empty folder.

3. Put your WinXPSP2 CD in your drive.

4. Open a CMD prompt and change to the location of XPSP2.exe

5. Type "xpsp2.exe /integrate:c:\WinXp"

6. Attempt to install IIS again.

7. When it prompts for files point it to "c:\WinXP"
