Just tried this in IIS 5 - works fine, but when I try to add more
filetypes to those that will be compressed (in the command prompt as
described in the MS technote) I get an error box:
"C:\Inetpub\AdminScripts\cscript.exe is not a valid Win32 application"
and in the terminal window is says "Access is Denied."

What could be up?

Would enabling gzip on mp3, wma, ra and other already compressed files
help much anyway?
