Install IIS

IIS with URL Rewrite module installed - http://www.iis.net/downloads/microsoft/url-rewrite

For IIS the htaccess needs to be converted to web.config:

<configuration> <system.webserver> <directorybrowse enabled="true"/> <rewrite> <rules> <rule name="rule 1p" stopprocessing="true"> <match url="^(.+)/$"/> <action type="Rewrite" url="/{R:1}"/> </rule> <rule name="rule 2p" stopprocessing="true"> <match url="^(.*)$"/ <action type="Rewrite" url="/index.php?{R:1}" appendquerystring="true"/> </rule> </rules> </rewrite> </system.webserver>
</configuration>
