Trying to Install Microsoft IIS SEO Toolkit on Windows 7
Hi, I have a Dell Windows 7 laptop. I am trying to install the Microsoft IIS Seo Toolkit on my system but I am unable to do it. It prompted me to install the Web Installer. I tried to do it but kept getting an error message. Can someone please help?

Hi there and welcome

Can you tell me please the exact error message you get when the installation fails?

Thank you

When I try to install the Web Platform installer, it asks me to select various components. I chose IIS 7.5 Express and tried to install it but it says system could not install it. Let me try and see if I can get a screenshot.

In the meantime, can you tell me if there are specific components that I need to select while downloading the Web Platform Installer?

Hi Richard,

Sorry I could not get back to you earlier. I ran the tool you gave the link to and restarted my system. Can you tell me what the next steps should be?

If you ran the repair tool then try to do the installation now.

Let me know the results please

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I still get an error. I have attached the error here. Also, I forgot to mention that my system is a Windows 7 Home Basic, if it makes any difference.

When you ran the repair tool, what was the message it gave?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

The tool ran and then it said all issues have been resolved. I don't remember the exact message but something to that effect.

ok, download the .net framework from my link below and install it

Tell me if you can install it from there please.

I was not able to install it. It gave me an error, ".Net did not succeed"

I have attached a screenshot.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Should I try to Install the toolkit itself or the Web Installer first?

which ever installer you have been using that has been failing.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Ok, I tried to install the Web Platform Installer. I chose the IIS 7.5 Express and IIS Recommended Configuration and clicked on the Install button. This time it was installed successfully.

Now, when I try to Install the IIS toolkit, it gives me the following error IIS 7.0 Management Console Features must be installed to use IIS Search Engine Optimization Toolkit

Click Start.

Click Control Panel.

Click Programs.

Select Turn Windows features on or off . If you receive a Windows Security warning, click Allow.

In the resulting Windows Features dialog box, select the Internet Information Services check box (as shown in the figure below).

Click + to expand the view to see the following nodes: World Wide Web Services, and then Application Development Features. Select the .NET Extensibility check box

Click OK. The activation of the newly installed components may take a few minutes to complete.

Then install please

I don't think so. The first time I tried to install it, it told me i need the web platform launcher. I had difficulty installing that. Now that is installed so trying to install the toolkit, but get this error

you need to have IIS installed in order to install this
