Windows Vista did not ship with a user interface to configure logging in the IIS Server Manager. This module was developed to provide missing functionality as well as provide an example of how to develop a UI module for IIS 7.0. While Windows Vista Service Pack 1 now includes a UI to configure logging, this source code still serves as a good example of how to develop a managed code UI module for IIS 7.0. Manually Installing the Module from Source Code Download and compile the source code using Visual Studio SP1. Register the compiled assemblies in the GAC using gacutil.exe. Run notepad as Administrator Open %system%\inetsrv\config\administration.config Find the <moduleProviders> section and add the following element: <add name="VistaIisLogging" type="Microsoft.Web.Management.Iis.Server.LoggingModuleProvider, IisLoggingServer, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=74622615c9245f3f" /> Find the <modules> section under the <location path"."> element and add the following element: <add name="VistaIisLogging" /> Save the file and open Internet Information Services Manager (InetMgr.exe) IMPORTANT: If you downloaded the previous version, be sure to change the version number of the module in your administration.config file.
