How to solve: ‘appcmd’ is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet

To use the appcmd command, we need to enable IIS Management Scripts and Tools option in IIS.

Here is step by step how to enable it:

1. Open Turn Windows features on or off.

2. Enable IIS Management Scripts and Tools under “Internet Information Services” => “Web Management Tools”.

3. We will see the appcmd.exe in C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv folder then.

4. Add C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv to PATH system environment variable.

We are done! Try to run appcmd in your cmd again, please. It should work!
