Skype an IIS Gotcha


I was getting the following error after installing IIS and starting a new Web Site in Windows 7



Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager


The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070020)





And in the System Event Log:


The World Wide Web Publishing Service (WWW Service) did not register the URL prefix http://something.local:80/ for site 1. The site has been disabled. The data field contains the error number.


It turns out Skype automatically listens to port 80 and 443. Change this is the advanced settings of Skype to fix the issue.
