oddly enough i had a call yesterday with the same problem. we went into IIS and tried to expand the sites. at that point we received the error 'cannot start service w3svc on computer '.' i would recommend googling that error. it appears to be a permissions issue based off what i found. let me know how things work for you. thanks.
Thank you for your answer! It appeared to be indeed an IIS permissions problem. For some reason (still under investigation), the local administrator group had only Read permissions on the default web site in IIS manager. After correcting the problem we copuld successfully install MQM.
Thank you again for your help!
I couldn`t figure it out. Opened the english.msi in SuperOrca and removed the launching condition. The installation was successful after that.
I had a similar problem on Windows Server 2012 R2 with the rights "Read" and "Read & Execute"
I additionally installed:
IIS 6 Metabase compatibility
IIS 6 WMI Compatibility
However, the error was repeated ...
the installation was successful when i ran setup.exe in compatibility mode (Troubleshoot compatibility).
Automatically selected the installation in compatibility mode with Windows 8
Hope this helps someone ...
