Re: [IMail Forum] Installing on Windows Web Server 2008

Dana, I installed Imail 10.01 on a Windows Server 2008 a little over a week ago.
I also received that error, but I investigated and found out you have to have 
IIS 6.0 Management installed and enabled. There might be another step or 2. Oh, 
It has to run in classic mode.John T

Subject: RE: [IMail Forum] Installing on Windows Web Server 2008Hello Jason,
Sorry for the late response. Unfortunately I can't write up an exact copy of
the error, at the moment, since in order to get that error I would need to
attempt another install, and to do that I would need to deactivate the
currently operating install.
However, the basic content of the error was that it could not continue to
install Imail without a running instance of a web server. It then exits from
the install completely. This error occurs at the beginning of the install,
immediately after you activate the license.
I am planning to give it another go this Friday evening.

 Subject: [IMail Forum] Installing on Windows Web Server 2008

 Hello all,

 Has anyone managed to get IMail 10.01 to install on Windows
 Web Server 2008?
 I have been trying to migrate our Imail server from a rapidly
 decaying W2K
 Server to new server hardware running Web Server 2008, but
 keep ramming my
 head against a wall early on in the install when it insists
 that I don't
 have a web page running in IIS (but as near as I can tell,
 the default page
 is up and running).

 Web Server 2008 comes with IIS7 and MS in their wisdom seems to have
 shuffled the location of all the settings to the 4 corners of
 the Earth, so
 tracking down what might be wrong with the setup is proving a major
 headache.

 For the time being I've reverted the server setup back to the
 old hardware,
 but I really need to migrate it soon before the hardware
 spews out the last
 of the magic white smoke.

 I've hunted through the KB articles on Ipswitch's help page
 to little avail.
 Referencing Vista or IIS7 in my search results in a long
 blank stare. So,
 any help at all is appreciated.
