Unfortunately that feature is not available in Windows Client SKU's, you can still configure it programmatically or through manually using the configuration, but I think the simplest is using a simple powershell commandlet.
If all you want to do is add new IIS Users and Grant them permissions to a specific Site you can use Microsoft.Web.Management API for that, just add a reference to it and the code would be something like:
// Add a new IIS User
ManagementUserInfo user =
// Grant Permissions for The user to connect to Default Web Site
ManagementAuthorization.Grant(user.Name, "Default Web Site", false);
// Grant Permissions for regular Windows User to connect to Default Web Site
ManagementAuthorization.Grant("MyDomain\\NonAdminUser", "Default Web Site", false);
All of these should be "easy" to call directly from PowerShell directly without having to build a custom application.

Is there any way to allow people to connect via Windows Authentication instead?
What is the purpose of the "Web Management Service" in Windows 7 if you cannot manage it remotely?
Is there any way to allow a person to fully manage another Windows 7 IIS from a remote machine without having to grant access to a specific site?
Can you write the code (or show me where to find it) to undo the permissions in your powershell code?

Unbelievable. I've been trying to configure IIS for two days now on a new Windows 7 machine after my motherboard died on my old XP machine. Using my old asp.net files and trying to set up a new Intranet on the new machine. Where do these engineers live?
On the moon? How do I find and use the "Microsoft.Web.Management API" and what does "...something like:" mean?
