IIS Handler Mappings - is there a way to automate adding a new one on installation?

We have a web application that runs locally on customers computers/networks.   I've recently added  a way to generate forms.  In it we have 3 customer handler mappings that need to be added to IIS.   Due to the end users abilities, it is highly unlikely any of them could add these on their own.   I have looked and cannot find any reference to anyone that has successfully done this with IIS 5, 6, and 7 as possible targets.   Does anyone know a way to do this programmatically?  Is it possible?

So far in Vista with IIS7, when I've installed my application it will add the Handler Mappings *sometimes*, not all the time.  That is pulling from the web.config of my application, in the system.webServer, handlers section.   Like said though it is not consistent.   Anyone with any ideas?

Thanks

Hi,

for IIS6, use adslutil.vbs to script your web site changes (in c:\inetpub\adminscripts by default)

for IIS7, AppCmd.exe is used for the similar purpose.

Cheers.

Using adsutil.exe should work with both IIS6 and IIS7.   Finding all the syntax needed for making these adjustments will be the hard part.  Thanks, its got me headed in the right direction.
