During installation, JobTraQ software automatically configures IIS using the IIS 6 metabase. In Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, IIS was updated to version 8. In order to install applications like JobTraQ that access the IIS Metabase directly, you must enable the optional IIS 6 compatibilty components on your server. Additionally, the default server configuration for IIS 8 does not enable the ASP.NET server components that JobTraQ and other dynamic .NET applications require.

This article explains how to enable the IIS 6 compatibility components and the required ASP.NET server components on Windows Server 2012 and Server 2012 R2 for JobTraQ X6.2.1 and above.
