IIS is not running as the default web server

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -


I’m trying to install Vault using IIS. I keep on receiving the error that “IIS is not running as the default web browser”.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Vault.

No use.

What all things I tried:

1. I checked and turned off the UAC (User Account control) option.
2. Ran regedit and deleted HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREAutodeskPLM
3. I had Autodesk Vault Test ASP.Net. I have completely uninstalled it.

Techies, please help me with a different solution.

Error: IIS is not running as the default web server

Thanks in advance,

IIS is not running as the default web server


Hi Faye,

Follow the following procedure to help solve the problem:

– On your computer, go to the control panel

– While there click classic view then administrative tools

– Then double-click on internet information services

– Check all the services that are under internet information services

Finished that, go to your browser and type localhost and press enter. You should see IIS running now.

IIS is not running as the default web server


Hello faye,

I was searching for a reliable answer for this question, but no answer seems to be a solution. So many people have tried in so many ways. The problem is only the error message is pops up with a string, “IIS is not running as the default web server”. So I searched for its log file. It shows that there are so many services which are not running. So I think if we run it manually it would not show any error message any more. I talked about this with a local expert and he told me the same thing. If after that the IIS shows the same error than we must have to take authorities advice.

Alerter                                            : Stopped             
Application Management                             : Stopped             
Autodesk Licensing Service                         : Stopped 
Indexing Service                                   : Stopped             
ClipBook                                           : Stopped  
Fax Service                                        : Stopped             
Flexlm Service 1                                   : Stopped 

Like this above services there are so many other services was stopped. So run those manually from the services.

Thank you,
