These articles discuss which port number, site number to use:

If you are target IIS version 5, you probably don't have to worry about application pools or web service extensions.

Hi ,
Thanks for your reply.But in that document there is no explanation on Ip address,advanced settings and configuration.I added all files to IISROOTFOLDER .and I configured IIS services as per help document .But after Installation I found there is no Virtual directory for my wesite folder in IIS view. my wedsite folder is present .But I tried manually It is working fine .Under configuration (Application Mapping)I did not enter anything.Please help me anything is required to configure in application mapping and advanced setting.
Note:I am using Installshield 11.5 premier edition and I need to configure IIS V5.1.Please find the attached document.

I am a little unclear about what you need to happen. Could you perhaps attach your Express project (ise file) to this post?

There is no virtual directory in the attached project. There is only a website named NDC8Manager. In the InstallShield IIS view, right click the NDC8Manager website and choose the option to create a 'New Virtual Directory'.

Also, this project appears to not be an Express project, but the behavior in this case should be the same.

Set the anonymous security information on the appropriate 'Directory Security' tab in the InstallShield IIS view. Make sure you set it on the virtual directory (not the website) if that is where you need it.

Maybe start by configuring the virtual directory OUTSIDE of InstallShield. Then, when you solve the error, copy the virtual directory settings to an InstallShield project.
