New IIS Version in Windows 10 Build 10041 not Recognized as Greater than IIS 7, Preventing URL Rewrite 2.0 from Installing

I can't install URL Rewrite 2.0 on Windows 10. Build 10041 as the installer does not detect the new version of IIS as > than version 7.

Not sure if this is related but when I go to Help > About Internet Information Services from within IIS, it says "Microsoft Windows Version 6.2 (Build 9200)" above the line where it says IIS (Version 10.0.10041.0).

Hi,

 

Thank you for posting your query in Windows 10 Technical Preview.

 

I understand that you are unable to install IIS URL rewrite on your computer as it shows the version required should be greater than 7.0.

 

I suggest you to remove IIS and add it again and see if it helps.

 

Follow the steps below to remove and add IIS feature:

 

  1. Press Windows key + R
  2. Type appwiz.cpl
  3. Click on Turn Windows features on or off
  4. Uncheck the box which has Internet Information Services
  5. Click Ok and restart the computer.

 

After following above steps, please re-enable the Internet Information Services and restart the computer and try installing the application.

 

If you are still facing difficulty while installing it, please post your query in IIS forums from the link below:

FIXED! As of 5/27/2015 The URL Rewrite 2.0 installer has been updated to work properly in Windows 10 & IIS 10. Just open the Web Platform Installer, search for URL Rewrite, download and install.
