i am using a third party applciation called XMpie which runs under a user account that belongs to the group IIS_WPG(for iis6.0).
Now, since i have upgraded the server to Windows2008 and IIS7 the application is not working anymore.
Looks like IIS_IUSRS account doesn't have sufficient permissions to run the application.
Any Help would be appreciated

    In IIS7, your applications runs under the security context defined by the application pool identity. See this article for notes on the new security model and how to configure security under IIS7
