It is beyond the scope of this guide to discuss complete configuration of a Windows web server. However, the following list gives a recommended minimum of what is required in the web server. (Note that different versions of Windows use slightly different names for certain configuration options. However, you should still be able to tell which options MainBoss requires.)

Note that the .NET Extensibility and ASP.NET options may or may not be present in the list of possible Windows features—it depends on your Windows configuration. Also, the number associated with these options may be 4.5, 4.6 or 4.7. If the options aren't present, their absence won't affect you; however, if the options are present, they should be turned on.

Also note that with IIS 7.5 running on Windows Server 2008 R2, some of the above are not selected by default. In particular, "HTTP Errors" and "HTTP Redirection" are not selected by default. Therefore, you must activate them manually.
