Sometimes, customers ask us, “Why do you spend so much time explaining installation?” It’s a valid question.
Most software companies do not focus on installation as much as we do at Port80 Software, but then again most software in the world does not plug into the IIS Web service…
You know we are the biggest fans of IIS around, but the 2.0 ISAPI interface to the 6.0 IIS Web server software has its limitations. Installation in the face of multiple third party filters and gracefully stopping IIS to make sure an ISAPI can even be installed are chief among them…
Long story short, there are many ways to fail in any ISAPI installation. Our new Install Notes pages has some updates to make it easier to install and even uninstall Port80 Software tools, but these tips should come in handy for anyone trying to install any ISAPI filter.
We look forward to your feedback, and hope these tips make any ISAPI installation a bit smoother for you!
