If you are installing MDS on SQL Server 2016 CTP you will sometimes get an error when launching the MDS Configuration Manager. It will look like this:
This is an error that has to do with a missing IIS service and it is a simple fix. Here is how:
Go to Add/Remove Program Features. You can search for it or go to the Run command and
Go to the left menu and click Turn Windows features on or off
Go to Internet Information Services on the tree then click on the World Wide Web Services node and then click on Performance Features node. Check the box for Dynamic Content Compression and click OK.
Relaunch MDS Configuration Manager and your error will be gone and you can proceed with the install.
