When you use the browser-based Internet Services Manager (ISM) to create a virtual directory that uses an extended character in its name, the following problems occur:

  • The Local path text box is blank.
  • The Read, Log visits, and Index this resource check boxes are not selected (checked).
  • A Web application based on the virtual directory does not appear to have been created (although it actually has been created).
  • The Execute permissions and Application Protection drop-down lists are too small, and are not populated.


Use the IIS snap-in version of the ISM to correctly view and modify the settings.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in Microsoft Internet Information Services version 5.0.
