For many, the first question asked when a new version of IIS is released - what is known not to work? In a recent webcast, I discussed what the known issues were for IIS 7.0 vs. IIS 6.0 and how to workaround. The functionality often still works but differently because of the fundamental changes in the platform. For some features, though, it simply didn't make sense to keep shipping the binary as today's Web technologies offer much more robust functionality.
Agenda for Webcast
The purpose of this webcast was to talk about the different changes in IIS7 that might cause functionality not work as you expect. In particular, what features were retired, have changed significantly, and lastly things to think about when moving from Windows XP to Vista when IIS is installed.
We will continue to drill-down on these topics in more webcasts in the IIS Webcast Series, part of the Live from Redmond series.
The Goals & Agenda for this webcast are the following:
- Understand what and why features are broke
- Discuss Eliminated features in IIS 7.0
- Understand upgrade issues from Windows XP & IIS 5.1 (in-place)
