NetIQ Analysis Center 2.9
Microsoft Windows 2012 64 bit
Microsoft SQL Server 2012


NetIQ Analysis Center 2.9 fails to install even though all prerequisites are passed with errors similar to:
Unable to open C:\Users\ADMINI~1.VIR\AppData\Local\Temp\{49AACB0F-BE7C-44D5-B5ED-F9C611418850}\WebSites.txt
No valid IIS Websites with ASP.NET v1.1 or above are available to install the Web Service.  Setup will not be able to continue without a valid IIS Website.  Please cancel setup and enable ASP.NET v1.1 or above on at least one website, and then re-run setup.


Go to Server Manager | Roles | Role Services | Add Role Service and Web Server | Management Tools | IIS 6 Management Compatibility check to install "IIS 6 WMI Compatibility".  Once this is installed, you should be able to now install Analysis Center.


In Microsoft Windows server 2003/2008 when you select the IIS 6 Management Compatibility parent component in IIS every sub-component is automatically selected, but in Microsoft Windows server 2012 only some of the sub-components are automatically selected under the IIS 6 Management Compatibility selection, but the IIS 6 WMI compatibility feature needs to be selected to install Analysis Center.
