Lasso Professional 8.6 has been tested on 32- and 64-bit distributions of Windows XP Professional, Windows 7, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, and Windows Server 2008R2. Supported web servers are IIS 6, IIS 7 and Apache 2.2. 32-bit and 64-bit connectors are available for each web server supported.
Instructions for installing Lasso 8.6 and FileMaker Server 11 on 64-bit Windows are available.
Note: Windows Vista is not an officially-supported operating system.
Important: Earlier versions of Lasso must be uninstalled before installing Lasso Professional 8.6.
Lasso Professional 8.6 requires the following Microsoft updates:
For servers running Windows Server 2008R2, use Server Manager to add the Application Server role, which includes .NET Framework 3.5.1.
64-bit systems also require the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x64)
Servers running IIS 7 need ISAPI enabled.
For Windows Server, use the Roles Wizard to add 'ISAPI Extensions' and 'ISAPI Filters' under Web Server > Application Development.
For other Windows versions, open Control Panel > Programs and Features and click 'Turn Windows features on or off', then under 'Internet Information Services > World Wide Web Services > Application Development Features', enable 'ISAPI Extensions' and 'ISAPI Filters'.
Important: As it is a system-level service, Lasso Professional 8.6 must be installed & run under a user with administrator privileges to work correctly.
Important: By default Windows is set to hide file extensions for known file types. This may cause files that appear to have a .lasso extension to actually have a .lasso.txt extension. Be sure to first follow Microsoft's support article on how to show all extensions in Windows Explorer.
Download the latest Lasso Professional 8.6 installer and run the included installer package.
If installing on 64-bit Windows with IIS: Lasso Professional 8.6 for Windows now provides a 64-bit connector for IIS on 64-bit systems, which is installed by default. To install, select the 'IIS Connector (Win64)' feature.
If installing on 32-bit Windows with IIS: When installing, select the 'Custom' install option, deselect the 'IIS Connector (Win64)' feature, and select the 'IIS Connector' feature (for IIS 7 and above) or the 'IIS 6 Connector' feature (for IIS 6).
The Lasso connector for IIS is not compatible with Windows Authentication:
To configure IIS 7 manually:
Lasso Professional 8.6 Server no longer provides ImageMagick binaries on the Windows platform. To use ImageMagick with Lasso (on 32-bit or 64-bit platforms):
Note: The 32-bit ImageMagick binaries should be installed regardless of whether the operating system is 32-bit or 64-bit.
please be precise !!!!
C'mon guys !!!!!
the correct installation package for imagemagick is the ImageMagick-6.6.7-10-Q16-windows-dll ... all the others are not working !

Thanks Marco, doc error corrected :)
Windows2008 R2 64bit + IIS7 - 404 error
Hello, I've installed LP18.104.22.168 in a Windows2008 R2 64bit (Spanish) server with IIS7 and when I try to enter into serveradmin.lassoapp I get a 404 error.
I have done all the steps in "Configuring IIS 7" of this webpage but, is correct this note? :
Note: on 64 bit systems you may need to manually copy the Lasso8ConnectorforIIS.dll into the C:\Windows\System32\ folder from C:\Program Files (x86)\OmniPilot Software\Lasso Professional 8\Extensions\Lasso Connector for Apache 2.2 (WIN64)
I think that correct extension to move would be "Lasso8ConnectorforIIS.dll"
Thank you in advance!
