Solution:This setup requires internet information server 5.1 or higher



Few days ago, somebody ask me a question on my forum. His question was :

i have just created my Asp.Net WebSetup. But the problem is that now it is giving error something like this : This setup requires internet information server 5.1 or higher. How to solve this problem.

So today i decided to describe, How to solve this error which occurs during installation.


As the error is saying that you need to install Internet Information Server (IIS) or higher.

You can download it form <a href="">here</a>.

Install it and try to run your setup file again. Hope the problem will be solved.

If you still got the error, then follow the below steps :

Step 1.

Open control Panel > Programs > Turn windows features on or off.

Step 2.

You can see windows features dialog.

Expand Internet Information Services and make sure all the features are cheked under "Web Management Tools" and "World Wide Web Services". Press OK Button.


Step 3.

Now try to run both the installation files one by one. Your problem will be solved.
