IIS Admin Base Object Interfaces
This section describes the structures, methods, and errors of the IMSAdminBase interfaces that are used to configure the IIS metabase. The Admin Base Object (ABO) interfaces are defined in the Iadmw.h and Mddefw.h header files, with metabase property identifiers declared in the iiscnfg.h header file.
The Admin Base Object (ABO) interfaces can only be used from C++ and Visual Basic 6.0 applications. ABO is more difficult to use than the other administration features of IIS. Consider using the IIS ADSI provider or the IIS WMI provider, both of which have scriptable interfaces. If you decide to use ABO, you can find example code in the Using ABO to Configure IIS section.
For more information about the other administration features of IIS, see Comparison of IIS Administration Features.
