ERROR configuring IIS to enable proxy


SecureAuth IdP Version Affected:  9.3



When upgrading to 9.3 the Updater displays this error:

Begin: update system components... 
Begin: installing IIS components... 
Configuring IIS to enable proxy... 
ERROR configuring IIS to enable proxy: System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x80070490): Filename: \\?\C:\Windows\system32\inetsrv\config\applicationHost.config

IdP 9.3 requires the IIS component called Application Request Routing.

ARR and 2 more installers are a prerequisite for the updater.




Extract the SecureAuth 9.3 Updater to a folder on the D: drive and run the following installers prior to upgrading:
<updater path>MFCApp_Bin\Extras\.NETCore2HostingComponents\dotnet-hosting-2.1.3-win.exe
<updater path>MFCApp_Bin\Extras\ReverseProxyComponents\requestRouter_amd64.msi
<updater path>MFCApp_Bin\Extras\ReverseProxyComponents\rewrite_amd64_en-US.msi
