    Maybe this just happened to me, but seeing your doc has us not use the Default Web Site, the new website created is actually W3SVC2 not W3SVC1 and this needs to modified in the nxlog.conf file downloaded in Step 16. I then restarted all 4 services and was able to continue configuring the index in Step 17.

    File "C:\inetpub\logs\LogFiles\W3SVC2\u_ex*.log"

    I installed on Windows 2012R2 fully patched, BTW.

    I updated the whole guide including the IIS steps to make them correct, I also clarified that people might need to change the nxlog.conf file to fill in the correct line.
