This is what I get:
'Load library("c:\windows\system32\inetsvr\inetmgr.dll") failed - the specified module could not be found.'
The directory and file specified above exists and permissions are appropriate for that directory.

Try to unregister the DLL exixting in your PC and reresister the dll once again and then give a try...

Later if the above does not work..

Please try to download the DLL and re-register the dll once again...

Make sure you tke  IIS metabase file backup somewere and also backup the metabase schema file too....

Download and reregister the DLL and give a try...

I got the dll to register with Dependancy Walker.
I ran DW against the regsvr32.exe and listed inetmgr.dll as a program argument.
The file registered fine and the mmc opens and functions ok..
