Hi,

When I try to change the setting in the Control Panel, I ended up with an odd error message. I have not seen this error in the experience. The error says it could not start the IIS Admin service on Local computer. The data is invalid. How do I fix this error message? Please help me to change the service. Thanks in advance.

Hello,

In order to fix this issue,

  1. Start Command Prompt with administrative privilege. Right-click and select “Run as administrator”.
  2. Run the following command:
    cscript.exe adsutil.vbs set /MaxHistoryFiles "12"

This will change the maximum history file to 12. This number is up to you as you’re running the command. You can change it to any number.

You can’t see the change until you restart IIS admin service. Restart IIS admin service and the error won’t bother you anymore.
