MSWC.ContentRotator ChooseContent crashes IIS 6.0

I am moving a working ASP application (not .NET) from IIS 5.0 to IIS 6.0.
For some reason, when the ChooseContent method executes, the browser returns
an error and the Event Log shows the following under System:

Source: W3SVC
Category: None
Event ID: 1009
Description: A process serving application pool 'DefaultAppPool' terminated
unexpectedly. The process id was '1560'. The process exit code was
'0xc0000409'.

OR

Source: W3SVC
Category: None
Event ID: 1011
Description: A process serving application pool 'DefaultAppPool' suffered a
fatal communication error with the World Wide Web Publishing Service. The
process id was '2464'. The data field contains the error number.
Data: 0000: 6d 00 07 80 m..€

I've gone through all the security permissions, including "Default
Permissions and user rights for IIS 6.0" KB article (#812614) and I ran the
Permissions Verifier in the IIS 6.0 Resource Kit.
I am also running File Monitor and Registry Monitor, and have noted the
following in the Registry Monitor:

Any ideas?

Thank you,

Ok, so now I've found out that the Utility components are not installed.
IIS utility components not installed: Ad Rotator, Browser Capabilities, Content
Linker, Content Rotator, Counters, Logging Utility, My Info, Page Counter, Status,
and tools are not installed with IIS 6.0. However, if you upgrade your Web server
from a previous version of IIS, the utility components are not removed.

http://technet2.microsoft.com/Window...06bf51033.mspx

Suggestions on how I can install these from somewhere else? I'd rather not
install Windows Server 2000 and then upgrade it to Windows Server 2003 R2...
I want to have a clean installation!

Thanks,
Charles B.

Wouldn't it be easier to create your own function to display random
content? Loads of code samples around:

Well, perhaps. I also use the Ad Rotator object, and had planned to
implement the Browser Capabilities component, too.

But, it's also true that I'm planning to port to ASP .NET 2.0, too... and I
assume that .NET probably has some comparable functionality to these
components, but that's a bigger project for later this year. I was hoping to
find a quick fix to using the MSWC components on IIS 6.0 so I can move on to
other things.

Ok, the plot thickens further. The dll files for Ad Rotator (adrot.dll) and
Content Rotator (ContRot.dll) are already in system32\inetsrv. In other
words... the files were included in IIS 6.0 after all, but not installed in a
way that they're ready to use. Perhaps all I need to do is regsvr32 these
dll files and they will work?

Can anyone suggest anything else on this matter?

Thanks

Not sure that registering the dlls is going to be that easy a solution:
