  • Error installing IIS on Xp Pro Desktop

    I tried to installed IIS on a XP Pro Desktop with Service Pack 2 installed and received the following error:
    When I try to install IIS throu controll panel -> add/remove programs
    ->add/remove components, I recieve the message that the install cannot find
    staxmem.dll. If i use the browse button to select the i386 folder, it copies
    the file and then can't find the file adsutil.vbs.

    I found a very similar problem in the MS knowledgebase;en-us;894351 and it had to
    do with either a corrupt secedit.sdb or a problem with sp2. I have performed
    the problem does not lay with the secedit.sdb file. The second option does
    not apply to my system, as it began its life as a xp home sp2 machine and not
    an xp machine without sp2.

    I am somewhat at a loss about what to do. I am open to any sugestions
    regarding either a true solution or a work around to get IIS properly
    installed (I need it for a class.) If you need anymore information, just ask.

    Any Ideas/suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
