I installed the latest Vista 5308 (as released to MSDN subscribers as the Feb CTP version) and so far, I haven't been able to get IIS to install. Has anyone got this working?

Update: Eric Deily (ericde), Program Manager at Microsoft, posted this information in the comments:

You can install IIS7 via Add/Remove Windows Components. To get there, click Start->Computer, then click on "Change or remove a program". In the explorer bar above that says ">Control Panel > Programs > Installed Programs", click the arrow after "Programs", then select "Advanced Options". Double-click on "Windows Features", and you should be able to select what you need in the "Windows Features" dialog, we're under "Internet Information Services".

Also note that there's a web relnote that should go live here shortly that will tell you how to use the package manager command line tool to install IIS7. We signed off on that relnote yesterday. For Vista Ultimate (the relnote contains instructions for how to do this on ALL client editions), you can install using the following "long" command line (run from an elevated command prompt):

start /w pkgmgr /l:log.etw /iu:IIS-WebServerRole;IIS-WebServer;IIS-CommonHttpFeatures;IIS-StaticContent;IIS-DefaultDocument;IIS-DirectoryBrowsing;IIS-HttpErrors;IIS-HttpRedirect;IIS-ApplicationDevelopment;IIS-ASPNET;IIS-NetFxExtensibility;IIS-ASP;IIS-CGI;IIS-ISAPIExtensions;IIS-ISAPIFilter;IIS-ServerSideIncludes;IIS-HealthAndDiagnostics;IIS-HttpLogging;IIS-LoggingLibraries;IIS-RequestMonitor;IIS-HttpTracing;IIS-CustomLogging;IIS-ODBCLogging;IIS-Security;IIS-BasicAuthentication;IIS-WindowsAuthentication;IIS-DigestAuthentication;IIS-ClientCertificateMappingAuthentication;IIS-IISCertificateMappingAuthentication;IIS-URLAuthorization;IIS-RequestFiltering;IIS-IPSecurity;IIS-Performance;IIS-HttpCompressionStatic;IIS-HttpCompressionDynamic;IIS-WebServerManagementTools;IIS-ManagementConsole;IIS-ManagementScriptingTools;IIS-ManagementService;IIS-IIS6ManagementCompatibility;IIS-Metabase;IIS-WMICompatibility;IIS-LegacyScripts;IIS-LegacySnapIn;IIS-FTPPublishingService;IIS-FTPServer;IIS-FTPManagement;WAS-WindowsActivationService;WAS-ProcessModel;WAS-NetFxEnvironment;WAS-ConfigurationAPI

That's a big help. I tried getting the release notes from Connect most of today, but the file manager had problems downloading the documents for some reason. Thanks, Eric!
