Importing applicationhost.config

My installation needs to modify settings in applicationhost.config, which is in C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\config. I'm trying to import this as an XML file, but I cannot see any files at all in the config folder. I've given my user account full control over the folder and I can see the config file there in Explorer, but not in the Installshield browser dialog.

Does anybody know of a solution, or another way of modifying the .config file?

Are you using a 32 bit package on a 64 bit system and getting bit by re-direction?
Try it on a 32 bit system and/or try changing folder to something other than C:\Windows\System32 to eliminate that possibility.

The following help topic also has some info that sort of explains the behavior that you may be seeing:

Thanks for the help. It was 64-bit redirection. Putting a copy of the file under SYSWOW64 fixed it.
