I am running Windows Vista Home Premium with SP1. I have been trying to
install the "IIS 6 Metabase and IIS 6 Configuration Compatibility" component
without success. After selecting this component in the "Turn Windows
Features on and off" window and then clicking OK, Windows spins for a couple
of minutes and then informs me that "An error occurred and the components
could not be installed".

I have tried the following with no success:
1. Uninstalled and reinstalled SP1 (this was on recommendation from an
"expert" at Expert-Exchange).
2. Uninstalled and reinstalled IIS 7.
3. Shut down all third party applications and disabled as many services as

Any help on figuring this out would be greatly appreciated. Also, if I am
posting in the wrong group if someone could point me to the correct group,
then thanks.
