    I have installed Windows 2003 Server on a Virtual Machine using a ISO image
    (my company gives us only the ISO image and No CD) Now I am trying to install
    IIS and it is asking me the path where convlog.exe resides. I did a search on
    VM and unable to find the file. I don’t have a Windows 2003 Server CD either.

    I checked on my host machine (Windows XP) and found convlog.exe in
    C:\Windows\System 32. But I am not able to find this on my VM.

    Any thoughts/help would be appreciated

    you need to remount/capture the ISO image for Win2003 that you installed
    originally from...

  4. You said you installed Windows Server 2003 from an ISO, so please re-capture
    the ISO for the VM (so that the VM thinks it has a CD drive with the OS
    Install CD in it), and then proceed to install IIS as normal.

    IIS is not installed by default, so the binaries have to come from
    somewhere -- like the ISO file itself.

    Don't get too hung up on the terminology. Just think in terms of what you
    would do on a physical machine, and then translate it into virtual

    Gentlemen, Thank you very much. I successfully installed IIS without any
    issue. Basically once I captured the ISO, it walked me through the next steps.

    Thanks Again!
