Updated: October 19, 2009

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista

This topic contains links to information and resources that will help you install and deploy Internet Information Services (IIS) 7. IIS 7 refers to the versions of IIS that are included in some editions of Windows Server® 2008, Windows Server® 2008 R2, Windows Vista®, and Windows® 7. IIS requires a Windows operating system to install, and the version of IIS available depends on the operating system that you are using. Not all IIS features and extensions are supported on all operating systems.

IIS 7.0 is the Web Server (IIS) role in Windows Server 2008, and the Web server in Windows Vista. IIS 7.5 is the Web Server (IIS) role in Windows Server 2008 R2, and the Web server in Windows 7.

You can use the Web Platform Installer (Web PI) to easily install IIS and applications that run on IIS. The Web PI is a free, lightweight tool that lets you install IIS and related technologies such as ASP.NET, SQL Server Express, Visual Web Developer, other popular Web applications. Because the Web PI installs the latest versions of available Web Platform offerings, with just a few simple clicks you can download and install any new tools or updates. To learn more about the Web PI, see Web Platform Installer.
