Hi David,

I don't know how IIS would end up disabled, but I do know that because
of a workaround for (probably the ServiceController) in Windows, ANTS
Profiler waits for port 80 to respond to determine that the web service is
up and running. If it never gets a reply from Port 80, ANTS Profiler will
throw an error.

The most likely cause for this is that your website or service isn't
running on Port 80. It's probably inconvenient, but if you're profiling a
website or service with ANTS Profiler, it needs to be set to run on port 80.

    This should not be a problem any more because ANTS Profiler 2.0 and up will now wait for the port of the website being profiled to answer a request rather than simply waiting for port 80.
