Install IIS in windows XP without Having Windows XP CD


Yesterday night I found myself in a big problem, I had to install IIS on a remote XP machine and I had no windows XP CD or image there. I have this image in my network but I couldn’t take the remote machine on my VPN as we both the network had same local default gateway.
I searched for the same over internet and found something that I was not very much happy so I decided to go for my own way and I extracted all the required dll, ocx, exe and other files from Windows XP CD and uploaded them on Rapidshare now any one can use this file to install IIS without having CD.
I will explain both the method and you choose which one you want to go.
Simplest method
Download the Windows XP IIS required file from rapid share link extract it and give the path of this extracted folder when it ask for dll files while installing IIS in XP without having a CD.

rapidshare. com/files/213300927/IIS_5.1_requierdfiles.zip
(please add http and  remove space in it due to some problems I cant make a complete link here.)

Second method
1) Download the windows XP SP 2 patch from softwarepatch. com/windows/xpsp2.html (please add http and  remove space in it due to some problems I cant make a complete link here.)  .
2) Extract the downloaded exe file using the bellow command in command prompt.
C:\Downloads\Software>WindowsXP-KB835935-SP2-ENU.exe /extract d:\xpsp2
Here c:\downloads\software is the folder where this WindowsXP-KB835935-SP2-ENU.exe file is stored and d:\xpsp2 is location where all the files from this file will get extracted.
3) When extraction is done install IIS and give the path of i386 folder in d:\xpsp2\i386 folder it will take all the necessary files from this location.

Precaution: The above method will work only for windows XP 32 bit version. For 64 bit version you need to download separate sp2 file.

If you feel not safe for installing files from my zipped file you can download those 118 file from www.dlldownload.com
I hope it was useful and helped you to solve your problem.
Thanks for being here

Thank you so much..., I could easily install IIS without XP CD using your method..

Rather Not Say said...

thanks very much for this. it's a lifesaver.

Only having a 30gb hd in my small laptop I deleted the i386 install folder and the sp2/3 folders to save space.

This has saved me hours of hunting thru the attic for my original xp disk (in a box somewhere, but god knows where it is!)

very much appreciated

Thank you sir. I consumed 2 days in finding this solution.

Many thanks, AP, for the quick help online.

For me, the file aqueue.dll (missing on the original archive) was requested by the Windows Component installer.

If you have the same problem, as AP advised me, download the file from here:

http://www.dlldump.com/download-dll-files_new.php/dllfiles/A/aqueue.dll/6.0.2600.2180/download.html

And add it to the folder where you unarchived the "patch". Then select the file and after several requests to select the location where you have the dlls, the installation is complete.

And by the way, this is the FASTEST way to have IIS installed without a CD.

Again, thanks so much for putting together this archive.

Cheers,

T.Aurel

Doesn't work. I extracted sp2 and got an i386 folder which doesn't help. I can't even select it when trying to install iis. It's looking for admxprox.dll which isn't in there.

I just did this for my Church. I wanted to make an intranet site for our church, and the XP install CD is probably six feet under somewhere. This is such a lifesaver! Thanks a bunch, and God Bless!

I was missing one .dll but got it from http://www.dlldump.com/download-dll-files_new.php/dllfiles/A/aqueue.dll/6.0.2600.2180/download.html

If you miss a dll, just google for it!

I tried the two methods..they didn't work. the second method, said it can't load about 10 files. I'm using winxp sp3, so I'm now downloading WindowsXP-KB936929-sp3-x86-ENU.exe to see if it would work. Any better option please?

Anonymous said...

thanks a lot

Anonymous said...

I tried the first method on winxp-sp3. It worked well. First, the aqueue.dll has to be downloaded as mentioned before. And, each time it asks for a missing file, tell it look at the extracted folder (of AP) instead of the one it shows in the dialog. THANKS for AP !!!I tried the first method on winxp-sp3.

Anand Rajendran said...

Go to Add or Remove programs from the control panel, select Add or Remove Windows Component and select IIS and begin the installation process.

Specify the extracted file location during installation and wizard will take care of the rest.

Thanks a lot for sharing this way-out. It worked fine for me.

Most of us using Windows XP do not have the CDs and it becomes a big problem when we need to configure a Windows component like IIS.
