Re-install of Client Access Role failing with 0x800700B7 error

Having some serious problems getting activesync working on an exchange 2007/server 2008 standard 64 system.

I was receiving a 0x085010004 error when trying to sync a windows mobile 6.0 device with the server, on playing around with the virtual directories, I kept receiving a "cannont locate mbx" error when trying to edit permissions on the "Exchange " virtual directory.

I decided to re-install IIS7 and the remove & reinstall the client access role.

when trying to re-install the client access role, I get the following error:

========================================
Summary: 2 item(s). 1 succeeded, 1 failed.
Elapsed time: 00:14:58


Copy Exchange Files
Completed

Elapsed Time: 00:11:47


Client Access Role
Failed

Error:
An error occurred while creating the IIS virtual directory 'IIS://dmserver1.dmservices.local/W3SVC/1/ROOT/Autodiscover' on 'DMSERVER1'.

Cannot create a file when that file already exists. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800700B7)

Elapsed Time: 00:03:11
========================================
 The only virtual directories created from the failed install is "owa" & "Exchweb"

Any ideas will be appreciated.

TIA.

Sounds like you are having fun....... Any change you can uninstall Exchange completely and then uninstall IIS?

Also any information in setup log would be of assistance.........
