    I was getting the same error (Windows XP SP2, IIS 6)

    Fixed it by going to IIS Mgmt

    Site Properties (on mine RC Default Web Site and select properties)

    Home Directory Tab

    Change "Application Protection" to "Low (IIS Process)"

    Click OK then do a iisreset from the command prompt...should work now.

    I am having the same error.

    I am unable to locate the "Application Protection" that you are specifying above. Is this an XP only thing? I am running Server 2003.

    Is this a permission error? I am not sure where to start.

    Go into IIS Management and go the application pool properties this site is tied to.  Click on the Identity tab.  Note the user that this app pool is running under.

    Go to Local Users and Groups and add this user to the Distributed COM Users group.

     Start, Run, iisreset

    try again and let me know if that worked.  I don't have a 2k3 server here running php that I can use to test but this has solved many of my permissions problems in 2k3 IIS.

    That was a no-go.

     I am at a loss. I really want to get this working...just not have any luck with it.

     I added permissions for Guest Account on php-cgi.exe and it works perfect!

     Not sure if it is a combo of what you suggested and that, but it works. Thanks!
