Here's exactly what happens: I go to Programs and Features > Turn Windows features on or off. Then, check the box for IIS, and hit OK.
It seems to be installing for a second then shows these error messages and closes out.
All it says that's slightly helpful is "The system can not find the file specified."
I'm running Windows 8.1 Pro on a Dell Inspiron 660s.
After running an
sfc /SCANNOW, it said I had a pending operation that required me to restart my computer before scanning.
When I restarted, I got some message on boot (too fast to read) and when it booted up it said
We couldn't complete the features - Undoing changes.
When I checked Windows Features, IIS was installed. This must've happened because I had uninstalled it earlier and something went wrong with that.
When I went to uninstall it, it failed and gave me the same message saying that it couldn't complete the features.
I did some research and found out this is a problem with the Windows 8.1 April Update. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2957390
