Hi.  I am trying to administer IIS (create webs, change existing web properties, set web folder permissions and delete webs), from a VB6 application.

As far as I can tell, I can use WMI to do this.  Any pointers on using this - the MS site looks a little confusing for me.  I have never used WMI before.  I dont want a scripted solution (I need to check errors after each command, and I need it to execute in sync with the VB app processing).  IDeally I need a COM component5 to do this - does anyone know of anything?  Failing this, can anyone help me get started with WMI please?

Thanks, TheFoot
