I am trying to get IIS7 to run in 32-bit mode. This is IIS installed on a Windows Server 2008 box.   I configured powershell and followed the instructions on this link

http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/201/32-bit-mode-worker-processes/

but I get  

set-itemproperty :  Cannot find drive. A drive with  name 'iis' does not exist.

Any idea why it is returning this for iis and how do I put it and confirm it is running in 32-bit mode?

Thank you

Thank you for your response, the snap in is installed.  Maybe it is running in 32-bit mode, but I just don't know how to confirm.

Did you use the shortcut in all programs > iis 7.0 extension to launch the commands ?

Your script didn t suceed cause it didnt found the iis provider. Try running the script again from the iis extension shortcut and it should works
