It doesn't bother me that Microsoft refuses to assist me with questions
because I have an OEM version of their software. However, it would be nice
if they provided an A to Z online manual where I could do my own research.
When I say manual I mean manual and not articles. It seems that Microsoft
and I don't always call a spade a spade and searching the Microsoft web site
can be a tiresome job. I would happily read an online manual "cover to
cover" to find what I am looking for.

Which brings me to my current problem. I want to use IIS (Internet
Information Services). Are there any directions anywhere? The first thing
I wanted to do was set up three separate virtual directories. Searched
Microsoft web site for "virtual", "directory", "virtual directory", and
"IIS". There was no help. Now I have to turn to you good people.

Any assistance will be very much appreciated.

Why don't you ask in IIS groups. IIS is banned from my computer because it makes stupid folder structures with stupid folder names. Plus of course it doesn't actually work. The help file is the manual.

It's been years since I set it up but there are probably wizards (I remember I didn't have any problems).

You pay MS for support. Even if you weren't OEM you would still have to pay.

Free Support

During the Mainstream Phase for a product, assisted support is provided free of charge for bugs, documentation errors and certain installation problems according to the following definitions. In cases where bugs and documentation errors have not been identified and documented by Microsoft, a support credit is required in advance of receiving support. Should the case subsequently prove to be eligible for free service, all fees charged will be refunded.

Thank you for the advice. I will do that. I am not sure why I couldn't
find that when I did a search.
