Double-click the key DependOnService.
The Multi-String Editor opens.

You must set Windows Media component services to be dependent on the
Web service so that the Web service can bind to port 80. If you do not
set this dependency, then Windows Media server components might bind
to port 80 first, and the Web server will not function properly. These
steps are specific to using Windows Media Services with IIS 4.0 or later.
If you use Windows Media Services with a different Web server, check the
documentation for that server for instructions on setting dependencies.
Your ability to make changes to the registry by using Registry Editor
depends on your access permissions. Incorrectly editing the registry
can severely damage your system. Before making changes to the registry,
back up any valued data on the computer.
