I had the same problem. Don't remember where I found it on the web, but here is what I did:

  • Click "Start button"
  • in the search box, enter "Turn windows features on or off"
  • in the features window, Click: "Internet Information Services"
  • Click: "World Wide Web Services"
  • Click: "Application Development Features"
  • Check (enable) the features. I checked all but CGI.

btw, I'm using Windows 7. Many comments over the years have certified this works all the way up to Windows 10 and Server 2019, as well.
