CAUSE
This problem occurs when you enable the Shared Configuration feature in IIS 7.0. The Shared Configuration feature points to a UNC location.

WORKAROUND
To work around this problem, disable the Shared Configuration feature before you try to install or uninstall a component in IIS 7.0.

After you install or uninstall the component, you can enable the Shared Configuration feature.
STATUS
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a bug in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
