    Hi All,

    am trying to get the AppPool status of my application using powershell script.

    while doing so am getting an exception as below

    get-webitemstate : Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {688EEEE5-6A7E-422F-B2E1-6AF00DC944A6} failed due to the following error: 80040154 Class not registered (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80040154 (REGDB_E_CLASSNOTREG)).
    At line:12 char:11
    +        If((get-WebAppPoolState -name $appPoolName).Value -eq "Stopped")
    +           ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
        + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (:) [Get-WebItemState], COMException
        + FullyQualifiedErrorId : System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException,Microsoft.IIs.PowerShell.Provider.GetItemStateCommand

    i have executed the script in both 32 as well as 64 bit.

    am using Powershell version 3.0 and running the script directly from powershell ise

    Pls advice
