Installing Filemaker Server 12 and configuring IIS 8

Your post

     Dear all,

     Can someone please explain to me how to configure Filemaker web publishing to work with IIS 8.0 on a Windows Server Standard 2012.  I have read through readme files and tones of web articles but I seem to be the only one that can't get this to work.  I believe it does involve some sort of integration with IIS but not sure what needs to be done or how to test it with a database.

     Any help would be greatly appreciated.

     Here is the deployment log with the sames errors that appear on more than one server which I have tried to install:
