iis7 vb6 app webclass mswcrun.dll

Trying to port a small web app from server 2003 to a server 2008 with iis7.

I am getting a server.createobject error on WebClassRuntime in the .asp page.  I have tracked this down to mswcrun.dll which is supposed to be in \Prgram Folders\Common Files. (or in Program Folders (x86) on a 64-bit 2008 server).

Question: How can I get the required DLL's I need onto this 2008 box?

Update: I have the vb6 dll file and mswcrun.dll registered on the IIS7 (server 2008) server.

I also put the website in its own Application Pool with Classic pipeline and 32-bit apps.  Now, when I hit any page on the site - html or asp - the site hangs and I get a message in the System Log:

Application pool 'MyApplicationPool' is being automatically disabled due to a series of failures in the process(es) serving that application pool.

I already have the rpcproxy fix in the ApplicationHost.config for PasswordExpiry with bitness64.

Is there any other "IIS6 compatibility" setting I can tweak?

Didn't fix the issue - but EE won't let me post until I clean up open questions.

I'm trying to move the site from the 2003/IIS6 to a 32-bit 2008 server to see if that makes any difference.  Thanks for the help.
