Getting Error: This Setup Requires Internet Information Server 5.1 or higher and Windows XP and higher when installing setup project on windows server 2008 and IIS 7

 

Introduction:

I was getting the error:

This Setup Requires Internet Information Server 5.1 or higher and Windows XP and higher when I was trying to install a setup project on windows server 2008 with IIS 7.0.

After 1 hour of searching, I discovered there was some configuration problems with the Conditions Editor (Requirements on Target Machine)

Walkthrough:

  • Go to the setup project setup and Launch the Conditions Editor.

Untitled

  • Right click on the IIS Condition and view the properties

  • Check Condition Formula; it should as the following:

(IISMAJORVERSION >= "#5" AND IISMINORVERSION >= "#1") OR IISMAJORVERSION >= "#6"

In the above case, the minimum IIS Version required is 6.

If you want to install on IIS Version 7.5 and above then use the below condition formula:

(IISMAJORVERSION >= "#7" AND IISMINORVERSION >= "#5")
