DirectoryServic es problem enumerating properties

I'm trying to write a custom installer for a web site project of mine
because the silly default WebInstaller projects don't know how to install
to anything other than the default web site... (if this is wrong, please
tell me!) So I'm trying to enumerate the web sites that exist on the local
machine with DirectoryServic es:

DirectoryEntry root = new DirectoryEntry( "IIS://localhost/W3SVC");

foreach(Directo ryEntry de in root.Children)
foreach(string pName in de.Properties.P ropertyNames)
Console.WriteLi ne(
string.Format(" {0} = {1}",

This works great on my development machine, but when I move to a machine
that I would actually install on (Small Business Server 2003), I get an
"NotSupportedEx ception" with a message of "The directory cannot report the
number of properties".

Anyone know why I'm getting this exception? Anything I can do about it?
Is there any other way to reliably enumerate web sites?

Hi, This question may seem a bit academic... To learn more about Access VBA, I have been enumerating the properties of various form controls. This was mostly successful and I have learned a lot from the process. It occurred to me that I could also enumerate the properties of the ADO Recordset in similar fashion, expecting to get back known properties such as AbsolutePosition, BOF, EOF, Filter, Sort, etc. I inserted the following
