IIS Manager will not start in Windows 7 (RC1)

I have installed Windows 7 (RC1) on my laptop (under VM Ware) today and have IIS7 running.  I can view the default IIS7 web page with out issue.

When I start Internet Information Services Manager the cursor changes briefly to indicate briefly but nothing happens.  No prompt for UAC no error.

I have been in 'Turn Windows Feature On or Off' and enabled the IIS Management console

Anyone seen this before?

Thanks

Have you just tried to kick down (Task Manager) the mmc and retried? Or rebooted?
I have this issue from time if I open the mmc after I had another mmc open.

Thanks for your comment, I have tried several reboot throughout the day and have just tried a restart of the IIS Admin Service to no avail :-(

Think I might try and remove all IIS7 components and start again

Have you tired to give the computer time enought to completely boot, and then open the IIS7 as the frist action?

Have you tried to create a new mmc and just to add the IIS7 snap in?

I still get the issue even after the machine has been up for over 15 mins, the actual boot time is quite good just a few minutes

I have also tried adding IIS7 as a snapin and get an error, which I shown below

OK, this looks like, that the snap in is not correctly registered. This may also the reason, why the defualt mmc will not load it.

I would try now to remove at least the Management consoles for IIS6 and IIS7 (you have both installed). Also uninstall the complete IIS6 compatibility section. Reboot and try to activate IIS7 again, but not all together. As long as you do not have explicitely IIS6 sites, you may not need this console. You can try to add them later, if needed.

In the end I tried removing ALL IIS features including the consoles.  I rebooted the machine and the reinstalled IIS with the default settings.  Still no change, including the error with the snapin.  I have read about other simiar issues with other snapin's to do with .net versions in the mmc.exe.config.

But as I only built this today I decided to go for a fresh install on the OS.  This is now running and I ll update you tomorrow

Thanks for your help today

Whilst the answer was not an exact match, getting me to try the IIS snapin got me on the right lines :-).  The fact that this was a new install meant it was not big deal to reinstall the OS.  After reinstalling the OS IIS7 Manager starts as expected.  Thanks for taking the time to help
