Hi all.

Been trying this afternoon to install Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 and when it comes down to actually installing the software, I keep running into the following:
-----------
Error 0x80070003 (The system cannot find the path specified) binding to IIS metabase path IIS://localhost/W3SVC/1.  Make sure the web site exists.
-------------

I have IIS installed on the server in question, but not sure if there are other server components missing?

Nevermind.

The problem was that the 'Default' website had been removed long ago.  Did a restore from IIS to restore it, changed it's port as to not conflict with Apache and et voila, install worked.
