Sorry that the download isn't working. I'm guessing it's related to Longhorn Server Beta 3 launch activities (http://blogs.iis.net/chrisad/archive/2007/04/23/iis7-gettin-ready-are-you-ready.aspx).
If you have the 32-bit version, IIS support running 32-bit worker processes on a 64-bit OS. (inetmgr - application pools - advanced settings - ...). Remember that the 32-bit version of the DLL should go into windows\syswow64\inetsrv. (It's tricky that the
32-bit DLL goes in the syswow64 folder)
If you're in the "real mess" stage and don't have anything you'd like to save, I'm guessing that this would work:
1) uninstall IIS completely
2) delete windows\system32\inetsrv\config\applicationHost.config (the main settings file, not protected)
3) re-install IIS

During my initial troubelshooting I uninstalled iis, restarted, deleted the applicationhost.config, then attempted to reinstall iis. It would not allow reinstallation without the applicationhost.config file; it errored out. I had to restore the applicationhost.config
file to reinstall. Which, of course, left my old configuration in tact. I had to manually read through each line of text trying to figure what was causing my error. I did finally find a line pointing to an isapi-dll file which had gotten imported while running
some appcmd statement I found in a blog. The service started working again after that, but still with no PHP support. I'm really amazed at the lack of good documentation with this software in a Vista 64 bit environment. I am not a web developer and rarely
have to use web serving software. Most of the documentation I have found assumes you already know most of the basics and skips over them or gives some general statement assuming you know what they are talking about. Or just provides a script which is suppose
to run and configure your system for you. when that doesn't work you have a real mess on your hands with no way to restore short of a system restore.

I asked out setup person about this and she said that when you do the uninstall, ensure you also uninstall WAS (Windows Process Activation Server). That way when you re-install everything should be restored.
