Installing/Adding IIS Windows Authentication feature in Windows 8


While installing the BizTalk Adapter Service I got the error "IIS Windows Authentication feature must be installed". As I am investigating Windows Azure Service Bus from my workstation running Windows 8, I don't have the convenience of the Server Manager to turn in on. Instead you will find it under the Windows Features - search for "Features" under "Settings" (or with 8.1 you will get the aggregated results). Below are screenshots showing the tree under which you can find the feature.

    I ran into the same issue. I have only 4 Items under "Security" with Windows 8.1

    Seems that Windows 8.1 PRO has to be installed to select this "Windows Authentication" feature.

    hello sir,

    i have done everything by checking all the required options but local host is not working . plz give me solution

  6. Wolfgang says:

    @Aurobinda: I do not understand your problem.

    Are you sure you have Windows 8.1 PRO edition installed?

    If "localhost" is not working try "127.0.0.1" instead.

  9. Wolfgang says:

    @jeddi

    Then check what version of Windows you have.

    It is only part of the PRO version and not of the "normal" version.

    Eu tenho o Windows 8.1 e eu estou tentar instalar o software da MicroStrategy, e consta como se não tivesse o Windows Authentication no IIS, porém mesmo com esse forúm não aparece essa opção.

    I have Windows 8.1 and I'm trying to install MicroStrategy's software, and appears as if no Windows Authentication in IIS, but even with that forum does not appear that option.

  14. owin says:

    still no resolution?

    can see only 1) Basic Authentication 2) IP Security 3) Request Filtering 4) URL Authorization nothing else.

  15. Dinesh says:

    Even I cant find it, any solution fouind yet?

  16. John says:

    Although I have windows 8.1 Pro installed it seems I cannot enabling IIS. I get an error message indicating there is not enough memory. Also under Web Management Tools, there is only IIS 6 Management Compatibility and under World Wide Web Services/Security are no further options.

  17. Shruti says:

  21. Hans says:

    Close IIS. Add the feature Windows Authentication as described above. Execute on the commandline "IISRESET" and start IIS. Windows Authentication is available.

  22. Olly says:

    Check your windows version, it seems this is only available on 8.1 Pro!
