Yeah, I've heard that IIS can be tricky. I have no experience myself, and
Review Board doesn't support it out of the box. If someone did get it to
work and was willing to maintain it, we'd be happy to have some instructions
in the docs and generate config files from rb-site, but it's not something
we're planning to do ourselves any time soon.
My recommendation in these cases is usually an Ubuntu-based Linux VM running
Apache or lighttpd.
