I am not glad that you had a hard time but it is going to help me so much as I have been lost. I will try your solution verbatim and post the results or other questions.
Firt question. You say get the iis6.dlls from an existing install. I do have one so that can be done. Where are they and how many do I have to get and put.
I tried in desperation to load iis 6 function and compatability apps from the windows disc hoping that it would bridge the gap but it did not.

Ya its not working for me either. I tried installing CF7 both as a multi and as a single server, neither of the installs do what they need to do correctly with IIS7.
Frankly I dont believe the IIS team successfully installed CF7 without doing some tweaking, would be nice to know what everyone is doing in a step by step process that people can use easily.
let me know if anyone has something like that available.

Josh, do you have the metabase installed? it is required in order for the ColdFusion installer to work. See this article for more info on how to install it:

So I add this component in first then do the CF install and it should add all the appropriate mappings, etc.. during that installation?

Yep, that should do it. Try it out and if it still doesn't work, let us know. Last time we tried, it was still working fine once the metabase was installed.

I added the metabase capability, uninstalled CF7, reinstalled CF7 and when it pulls up the URL to complete the installation, it Shows an error page like usual with the 404 error.
Any further ideas? IIS 6 was a lot easier, Im sure IIS 7 rocks once you get the hang of it, but for now its causing some frustrations around here.
Let me know what you think.

I followed the instruction and found that after changing Vista to a basic windows style, and installing the aforementioned add-in I was able to load ColdFusion 7 but once loaded got the same error with the administration page. I finally just loaded it as
a stand alone server and it is working. I will just used it as is and wait for Adobe to update their software.

I was suffering the same problem of these collegues.
I was trying to install ColdFusion mX 7.02 onto a new VISTA Business PC, and I incurred in the ssame problems.
I installed CF with the compatibility system, but at the moment to add the script mappings I receive these messages (excusemy bad translations, I have an Italian verions)
Activte the ISAPI extension ? In this case the extension will be added as allowed item into the ISAP and CGI restriction. If the extensions are already in the list they will be allowed.
At this I click on YES. At this time I have back a second message box with an error that tells(again sorry for the translation from Italian to English):
One or more modules for the manager (?provider?) are not present in the modules list. If you are trying to add a script mapping, the module ISAPIMODULE or CGIMODULE is not present in the modules list.
What does it mean ? When I tried to edit applicationhost.config the section <isapirestriction /> was empty. Does this matters something ?
Could you help me please ?
Thanks a lot in advance.

Hey guys, me again
I havent had time to mess with this for sometime:
I uninstalled CF7 - Made sure all my IIS 7 items where checked
Reinstalled CF7 - THen I had to manually add the handlers and isapiCGI stuff, the thing I think is missing is the ISAPI filters.
As of now its still not working - any additional help is much appreciated:
