Subject: Re: [ServletExec] IIS running in isolation mode
Yes it is.
However, if their reason for putting IIS 6 into IIS 5 Isolation mode is 
because of SE ISAPI, then in my personal opinion... it would be better 
to use SE AS (with IIS *not* in isolation mode), rather than SE ISAPI 
(with IIS *in* isolation mode).

Isolation mode is not a bad thing, by itself.
But in my view it just goes against the "grain".

If a person is using SE ISAPI and has to configure IIS to be in 
isolation mode in order to get things working, that alone is a bit of a 
red flag to me.
Yes it may get things working for them, but why?
Most IIS users don't need to do this.
Those that do usually have an IIS (or OS) installation with special 
security settings which are causing this condition.
In those cases SE AS is a "cleaner" way around the problem.
