I need to remember to use this version for IIS7 isntead of Linux.
From http://ruslany.net/2009/05/iis-7-url...-wordpress-28/

I am pleased to let everyone know that WordPress development community has added a built-in support for IIS 7 URL Rewrite Module in the upcoming WordPress 2.8 release. Starting with version 2.8 the Permalink Settings page will allow you to easily configure “Pretty Permalinks” URL structure when WordPress is running on IIS 7 with URL Rewrite Module v1.1 installed. Here is how the process of updating Permalinks structure will look like in WordPress 2.8 on IIS 7:
  1. Go to Settings –> Permalinks page and choose the permalink structure that you prefer: (see image #1 below)
  2. After clicking on “Save Changes” button the generated rewrite rule will be displayed with the instructions on how to update the web.config file manually: (see image #2 below)
  3. Now you can copy the the given XML and put it into the web.config file inside of /<configuration>/<system.webServer>/<rewrite>/<rules> element and that’s it!
  4. Alternatively – instead of manually editing the web.config file you can have WordPress to update it automatically for you. To do that, temporarily grant WordPress write access to web.config file and click on “Save Changes” again. WordPress will add its rewrite rule into the proper location inside of the web.config file. Do not forget to revert the write permission on web.config file after the rule has been saved.
