    Hi, I have been trying to install IIS (win xp sp2) but keep finding the following error message: "setup could not copy one or more files. The specific error code is 0x57. Press OK to continue or Cancel to stop setup and try again. If you continue, the components may not  function properly." And true to the message, IIS does not work! In fact, when  I try and run it from Administrative Tools, it trys to search for the file iis.msc with out success. I have  tried to search the Knowledge Base with the code mentioned above, but found little of help. 
    Has anyone come across this problem or similar and have any advice for what I can do to resolve this problem and  install it correctly? 

    I thank you should any be able to help! 

    Thank you,

    Check if you find any fail/error entries in the iis6.log file at %windir% directory..... have you try uninstall and reinstall again?

    Wow.... messy.
    Now - try ...
    a) uninstall IIS (safe or normal mode)
    b) Remove files and folders
    %windir%/iisx.log (x=5 for w2k, 6 for XP, Win03)
    (use safe mode to delete)
    c) reboot

    then check if you can open Component services and drill all the way down to 'my application' node... any error msgs? next check if you other event log errors... need to make sure com+ catalog is fine before reinstalling IIS.
