Open the IIS Manager, right click Web Sites and select properties:

Switch to the Service Tab

Check "Run WWW Service in IIS 5.0 Isolation Mode".

You will be asked for Restart of IIS. Click yes to restart IIS. If you are not asked just restart IIS.


I have installed IIS 5.1 from the Win pro service pack 2 cd after installing the IIS 5.1 I tried the following link
But I am not able to create IIS_WPG
so I tried the other options you mentioned. When I opened the IIS Manager I was not able to find the Application Pool.

Then I right click on the websites and then tried for service tab and I was not able to find the service tab.
I am enclosing the screen shot of the same.

Kindly advice what is wrong
