Hello All,

I am trying to upgrade my Wundows based WCS to

During the upgrade it tells me that port 8 (http)is needed by WCS and being used by another application. I have tried to find out which application is using that port so that I either stop the app or service and failed.

Would anyone kow a quick way to discover/disable the app on a Win 2003 server/

thanks a lot

Do you have IIS installed & enabled?

Also, try stopping the WCS service 1st before upgrading

Hi ericgarnel,

I am not running IIS on the server. I removed the WCS and rebooted the server. I still get the same port hhtp (port 80) is being used by another application.

I had the same issue regarding http (80) being used during a new installation of wcs. To resolve the issue I typed "iisreset /stop" at the command prompt. IIS was my trouble.
