I am doing a package, for which it is necessary to turn on the IIS 7.0 Management Console (Control Panel-> Internet Information Services->Web Management Tools->IIS Management Console), otherwise which it wont install. So IIS 7.0 is like a dependency to that package.

So as a result of that I am trying to implement the turning on of IIS 7.0 in a separate package and make that as a dependency.

I went through various IIS articles on how to install it silently or having it run in an attended manner. I also found through the help of this link (http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/130/understanding-setup-in-iis-70/) that WAS-ConfigurationAPI is a dependency to the IIS Management Console (Check the section IIS 7.0 Intra-Dependencies in the link).

I have tried the following command at best to turn on the IIS Management Console "start /w pkgmgr /l:log.etw /iu:IIS-WebServerRole;IIS-WebServer;IIS-WebServerManagementTools;IIS-ManagementConsole;WAS-WindowsActivationService;WAS-ConfigurationAPI" The IIS Management Console does get turned on with the above command, but the problem is that many other unnecessary things inside IIS also get turned on.

I have tried various permutations and combinations of the above command line, but the end result I have got is that either nothing gets turned on or many unnecessary things get turned on. My goal here is just to turn on the IIS Management Console, and probably just its dependency that is WAS-ConfigurationAPI.

Any help here would be appreciated.
