I was sceptical, but that actually worked! Amazing. You are a genius. I can now use my Windows VM again.

Downloads how? By HTTP? FTP? STFP? The "wget" tag implies HTTP, but would be good to be explicit.

comment IIS applications appear in appcmd but not in IIS manager tree view
I may have partially answered my own question. The app BaseMetals has a physical path of D:\fm_websites\BM\MyDesk. The three apps above have virtual paths Basemetals/_testing_/... but there is no VDIR or app that maps to Basemetals/_testing_ itself, and no D:\fm_websites\BM\MyDesk_testing_ directory exists in the filesystem. If I create a directory there, the apps appear when I refresh the tree. This does still leave open the question of how to scan the configuration for this problem!

comment Move IP from one server to another without disruption
I actually do have two DNS servers placed on two subnets, but from what I've read the idea of primary and secondary DNS is bogus and multiple DNS servers were originally for load balancing, not failover. That means clients are free to hit any DNS in the list first, not just the first one. Also I see in practice it takes clients 5 seconds or more to time-out their DNS request and try another server, which creates serious problems.
