You should attempt Microsoft Web Platform Installer, which supports you place this up in IIS. This involves very little prior experience of establishing web programs, and really should exercise-of-the-box.

Microsoft Web PI is certainly the simplest way configure IIS.

Alternatively, you might try with XAMPP for Windows if you do not always need to use IIS.

Error code 0x8007010b means 'The directory title is invalid'. To begin with see if the folder C:\inetpub\wwwroot\Blog is available but may be another folder recommended out of your PHP.INI configuration file.
