In this exercise, we will install the server components to suport Visual Interdev 6.0. These components are extensions and upgrades to the IIS 4.0 and FrontPage98 Extensions to support the more sophisticated development environment used by VI 6.0.
This exercise covers the server components of VI 6.0. A later exercise will cover the client components of VI 6.0.
If you have not yet installed IIS 4.0, this procedure will do a complete install of IIS 4.0 as well. In the example we are showing here IIS 4.0 has already been installed.
You may also encounter a message which says that VI 6.0 has not been tested to work with Service Pack 4.0. While only Microsoft can tell you that Service Pack 4 and VI 6.0 will work fine together, it is a pretty safe bet that there will be no problems.
That is a good reason to install the software and apply the service pack last. Hopefully, the service pack is the most up-to-date and is aware of any problems.
Hopefully in this day and age, with 16GB hard disks, space won't be a problem.
The first component, NT Option Pack 4.0 has already been installed. This consists of IIS 4.0 and several other components. If these components were not installed, they would be installed at this time.
The last four components are what will be added during this install.
We have already done the installation so don't select Launch Backoffice Instllation Wizard.
Instead chose Next.
Press Finish and the installation is complete.
