Re: Cosign install problem
Very sorry these updates aren't part of the installer yet:
Add the following registry entry:
HKLM/SOFTWARE/University of Michigan/ITCS/Cosign
Add a string value called ConfigFile. Set the value to "C:\Program
Files\IISCosign\cosign.dll.config" less the quotes and the path to
wherever your config file is located.
The following permissions need to be set for Windows 2003 (this is not
necessary for a Win2k/IIS5 setup):
For your entire /iiscosign/ folder, IIS_WPG needs needs everything
selected except for "Special Permissions." Be sure to select the
option that applies these permissions to the folder contents and
For the \CosignDB\ folder:
Internet Guest Account, IUSR_[machine name]- needs Read and Write
For the \Logs\ folder:
IUSR_[machine name] - Read & execute, list folder contents, Read, Write.
Also, make sure MSXML 4.0 is installed. (The installer placed
msxml.msi in your IISCosign folder.)
Finally, don't forget to get your certificate signed by the U-M
Cosign does not show up in a service menu because it is not a service.
That is, it is not an independently running executable.

I'm trying to install Cosign for IIS (version 1 RC3), but something
to be amiss. It's on Windows 2003 Server / IIS6.
I've gone though the configuration process described in the README, but
the filtering won't work. The two symptoms I see are:
- I can't find the cosign service in the machine's service menu
- The ISAPI Filters tab in the IIS manager shows the cosign filter, but
gives its status as 'Not Loaded' and it's Priority as '* Unknown *'.
This persists after I stop and restart the site.
I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling Cosign, and restarting the server,
but have had no luck. Any ideas would be much appreciated.
