The following VB Script demonstrates how to create a IIS Application programmatically.

Dim Website, AppProtection, IISOBJ, Site, Description, IIS4

ArgComputers = Array("LocalHost")
ArgWebSites = "MyWebSite"

Dim foundSite
Dim compIndex

for compIndex = 0 to UBound(ArgComputers)
    set foundSite = findWeb(ArgComputers(compIndex), ArgWebSites)
    if isObject(foundSite) then
        Website = foundSite.Name
        
    else
        Wscript.Echo "No matching web found."
    end if
next

Function findWeb(computer, webname)
    On Error Resume Next

    Dim websvc, site
    dim webinfo
    Dim aBinding, binding

    set websvc = GetObject("IIS://" & computer & "/W3svc")
    if (Err <> 0) then
        exit function
    end if
    ' First try to open the webname.
    set site = websvc.GetObject("IIsWebServer", webname)
    if (Err = 0) and (not isNull(site)) then
        if (site.class = "IIsWebServer") then
            ' Here we found a site that is a web server.
            set findWeb = site
            exit function
        end if
    end if
    err.clear
    for each site in websvc
        if site.class = "IIsWebServer" then
            '
            ' First, check to see if the ServerComment
            ' matches
            '
            If site.ServerComment = webname Then
                set findWeb = site
                exit function
            End If
            aBinding=site.ServerBindings

                if aBinding(0) = "" then
                    binding = Null

                else
                    binding = getBinding(computer, aBinding)
                end if
            end if
            if IsArray(binding) then
                if (binding(2) = webname) or (binding(0) = webname) then
                    set findWeb = site
                    exit function
                End If
