I am unable to get code (script or managed code using System.DirectoryServices) to work on IIS7 if it uses ADSI. Symptoms include:
Why is this?
you need to install the "IIS Metabase and IIS6 Configuration Compatibility" feature under Internet Information Services-Web Management Tools-IIS 6 Management Capability to get the IIS6 ADSI provider installed.

I have encountered a similar problem where I was prompted to install:
- IIS Metabase and IIS6 Configuration Compatibility - how do I install this in Win 2008 Server? Do I need to uninstall/re-install IIS?
- ASP.NET - any idea what does this mean?
- Windows Authentication - I think this can be enabled from IIS.

You can enable these features in the Add/Remove Programs control panel. In there you wiull find a link off on the left labeled something like 'Turn Windows features on or off'. Click that and you'll get a UI for managing the IIS features that are installed.

Am installing Siebel 188.8.131.52 on Windows Server 2008 R2/iis 7.5x . The virtual directories were not getting created using the installer. Installing the IIS6 option set and reapplying the SWE profile resulted in creating the necessary/expected virtual directories
as expected. I did not know where to find the settings until finding this post.
This is a great suggestion. Thanks.

Worked for me. Thanks. TIme goes by and you forget how to do things, so keeping posts like these around is a good thing.
