Problem Enabling Web Publishing on FMS 14 (Win2012R2)

Hi All,


I've been mostly running FMS12 on a VMWare box for several years with no trouble, but now I'd like to update to the latest server and have had IT spin up a fresh VM running 2012R2 for me.  I can enable IIS with the default website as mentioned in the getting started, and run the FMS installer and deployment assistant to completion except when I have any Web Publishing checked during deployment (or during edit deployment if I try to enable it after the fact).


During the deployment assistant, right after choosing "single or multi machine" deployment, the deployment assistant will hang and become unresponsive.  I can see error messages appear on the hung assistant saying:


Test web server ( Error code = 500


This seems to indicate some kind of internal error, but I'm not sure how to fix it.  It doesn't seem to matter whether I use port 80 or 8080 or whatever on the FMWebSite that appears in IIS Manager on FMS install.  There definitely seems to be a screw up in IIS with regard to the FMWebSite, and any help troubleshooting would be appreciated.
