Struggling with IIS 6.0

Last week I was investigating a problem on a webserver. During the travel, I found some interesting links on the internet related to IIS 6.0.

To get an overview of IIS 6.0 I suggest the Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0 Technical Library on Technet.

Also the IIS 6.0 Resource Kit is very usefull, containing the LogParser which is handy when analysing IIS logfiles.

Here is an example of the usage of LogParser:

List all occurences of a specified URL in the iislogfile:

"C:\Program Files\IIS Resources\Log Parser\LogParser.exe" "select date,time,cs-uri-stem,c-ip from c:\ex*.log where cs-uri-stem='/yourdomain/myfile.aspx'"

Other nice links:

Configuring different diff/merge tools for Team Foundation Version Control

On this blog, I found how to configure a different diff tool. I prefer WinMerge, so I configured this one.


Adapt IE7 Search to use Dutch Google

In Internet Explorer 7 you can set Search Providers. I do use the Google Search provider. When the Search Provider is set, you can enter your search criteria in the Instant Search box and press ENTER. By default the UK Google is used for this.

As a Dutch, I however prefer the Dutch Google. I found that this can be done by editing the registry. Just search the registry key: HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchScopes


Here you find the entries for the currently available Search Providers in your Internet Explorer 7.0.  Now look into the subkey containing the Search Provider with the DisplayName "Google" and adapt the URL to your preferred Google setting. In my case:




Now you can use the custom Search Provider in Internet Explorer 7.0
