Error 10 Unable to initialize the native configuration support external to the web worker process (HRESULT=0x80070003). nativerd.dll must be in %windir%\system32\inetsrv.
I am running Visual Studio 2008 on Windows Vista Premium. It has been running fine for about 6 months. All of a sudden, I got the above error.
This error occurs when I compile any ASP.NET pages. I have tried everything short of stripping Vista back to factory settings. This includes uninstalling VS2008, uninstalling IIS, turning off and then reinstalling IIS with the intention of reinstalling
VS2008. However, IIS would not re-install.
I tried recovery back to several points; each time I got a message that said that the recovery did not work. Serendipitously, I discovered that apparently it DID work and at least I got IIS back. I then re-installed VS2008. SAME PROBLEM.
This is a working web development computer and this has cost me many hours and a lot of frustration. My search of the web shows that this might have been a problem with VS2008 and Vista in the past, although I thought that it had been resolved.
I am guessing that the nativerd.dll might be corrupt, but I would have thought that it should be replaced with all of the mechanations which I have tried.
I hope that someone here has a solution for this, because I REALLY would not like to have to strip my computer back to Factory settings, which I assume means that I will lose everything that I have installed, and start all over again!
Any help would be appreciated.

The second link has the procedure that I followed. That resulted in my not being able to re-install IIS.
The first one mentioned a repair to the operating system. I am not sure what that is. I did a recovery back to about a month ago ( well be fore this happened ) and that did not work. The only other option offered me was to roll back the operating system
to factory settings, which I am loath to do.
So what does he mean by repair. This computer came with Vista pre-installed. There is no disk.

Run vs 2008 setup and there is an option for repair.

I have already tried that a couple of times. It did not work!
