How To Install IIPImage on Windows 2008/IIS7 – 2008R2/IIS7.5

It is now finally possible to install IIPImage on IIS7 and IIS7.5! Many thanks indeed to Ricardo Valdiviezo for getting this to work and for sending us the following detailed and illustrated tutorial.


  1. First, if it is not already installed, install IIS 7/7.5.
  2. Install the FastCGI extension
  3. Download the IIPImage Windows package and unzip it into a folder (e.g. “C:\IIPServer”)
  4. Create a folder called images into the folder which was created in step 3
  5. Create a new folder called logs into the folder which was created in step 3
  6. Rename the file iipsrv.fcgi to iipsrv.exe
  7. Now you should be able to see the following folders and files into the folder which was created in the step 3:

0.9.8 Server Windows Binary Release

IIS, Server 2 Comments

The Windows binaries for version 0.9.8 of the IIPImage server have finally been released! These have been compiled for Windows 2000/XP using dev-c++ and mingw. The archive package contains not only the IIPImage server binary, but all the necessary libtiff, libjpeg and fcgi dll’s also. Simply extract the contents into your fcgi-bin directory. Please carefully follow the installation instructions for either installation with Apache or installation with IIS6. Many thanks to ab-c media for their help with this.

You may download the package from here:

IIPImage server can also now run with IIS Internet Information Service (>5.1)! See the server section and this HowTo.

In this HowTo I will explain what are the (easy, thanks IIS developers!) steps to run IIPImageServer on a Windows machine running IIS (at least, IIS 5.1)

This tutorial is intended for people with a minimum knowledge of how to manipulate a configuration file, a running Microsoft IIS server and who can not wait for an installer ;)

1) If is not installed on your machine, install IIS. To do this follow one of the millions of howtos or the originals Microsoft instructions.

2) Test it, if everything is ok and you get your first page, it works ;)

3) Download the latest version of FastCGI for IIS from IIS website (this step is only for IIS 5.1/6 as IIS 7 comes bundled with fastcgi) and install it.

4) Download IIPImageServer and unzip it in a folder (like C:\fcgi-bin for example) .

5) Open your Internet Information Service Manager and create a virtual directory (let me say fcgi-bin) that point to your fcgi repository and give the exec permission.

6) Also from the Internet Information Service Manager add the handler as described in the Microsoft pages.

7) Create an empty file called IIPImageServer.fcgi in your virtual directory and save it.

8 ) Using your preferred editor (vim) open the fcgiext.ini configuration file (must be in c:\WINDOWS\System32\inetsrv\fcgiext.ini) and substitute the content with:


9) Here we are! Restart IIS from Internet Information Service Manager and open

10) Refer to the IIPImage website to configure the client and the image format!

Now everything should work unless I’ve forgotten something crucial! Send me your comments and I’ll correct the howto.

Stay tuned also for updates as I still need to fix the problems with the parameters to pass to IIPImageServer…

Enjoy IIPImage and don’t forget that you can contribute to the development with donations or with code!
