I used to have a working II7 Vista installation with a number of sites. Then something went wrong and it all stopped working.
So I removed IIS7 using Control Panel, Programs, Turn Windows Features On and Off but when I tried to re-install, it fails.
In a simple case of selecting just "IIS Management Service" the Windows\IIS7.log shows it going ok until;
[01/05/2008 21:37:56] [ ***** IIS 7.0 Component Based Setup ***** ]
[01/05/2008 21:37:56] "C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\iissetup.exe" /launch C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\appcmd.exe install module -name:RequestFilteringModule -image:C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\modrqflt.dll
[01/05/2008 21:37:56] Launching command C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\appcmd.exe, with params C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\appcmd.exe install module -name:RequestFilteringModule -image:%windir%\System32\inetsrv\modrqflt.dll
[01/05/2008 21:37:57] < !!FAIL!! > LaunchCommand result=0x80070490
The error code translates to 1168 Element not found. Looks like broken config, there is only a applicationHost.config in the inetsrv\config folder (the schema folder is there and seems to be populated ok). If I edit the config file and add some <GlobalModules>
tags the error changed to 50 ERROR_NOT_SUPPORTED. However, a complete uninstall/re-install should build a new working config?????
I have also run a SFC /SCANNOW and it shows no errors.
Thanks to all

I would suggest you try to get Vista SP1 RC1. I have experienced bad IIS installation issue in Vista, end up rebuilt and prob come back after I add/remove few times, then rebuilt again. Then got myself sp1 beta and happily add/remove without any issue since

Also, on RTM, you can try uninstalling IIS and WAS (windows process activation service) and then reinstall WAS - this should get a clean install.

Thanks very much for the suggestion, that did it!!
Used Control Panel, Turn windows features on or off, to remove WAS and add it back. Then IIS features install OK.
