Windows 7: “The dynamic content compression module is not installed.”

Using the <urlCompression doDynamicCompression="true" doStaticCompression="true" dynamicCompressionBeforeCache="true" /> web.config parameters I got no results, so I went to the IIS Manager to find this message on the compression settings page:

This is a well hidden feature, but I finally found it via the Control Panel, Turn Windows features on or off:
