How to install IIS 6 scripting tools on Windows 2003

I want to log worker process recycling, By default, IIS does not log worker process recycling events:

For this, I need the folder   %systemroot%\inetpub\adminscripts
This folder contains AdsUtil.vbs administration Script

The problem is that my server does not have this folder - i.e.  Adsutil.vbs Administration Script  is not installed.

Now there are many ways to install IIS 6 scripting tools on IIS 7 -

But nowhere can I find how to install it on Windows 2003 if it does not exist.
The server is set up as an application server and IIS 6 has been running perfectly on it without any problems so it is not that IIS 6 is not installed

I have tried doing what technet says
but when I get to   part 2:
To install required Windows Server 2003 components

1.In Control Panel, select Add or Remove Programs.
2.In the Add or Remove Programs dialog box, click Add/Remove Windows Components.
3.In the Windows Components Wizard, select Application Server, and then click Details.
4.In the Application Server dialog box, select ASP.NET, select Internet Information Services (IIS), and then click OK.

Now I am lost and dont know where to go. I dont even think this is the correct tab.

So I tried server roles
Manage your server - Manage this application server - and now I am lost here - it shows
Application server
-.net configuration 1.1
-IIS Manager
-Component services

But nowhere can I see how to install the required scripts. The server is already set up as a "Application Server (IIS, ASP.net)

Please help
