Hello,

I need to upgrade a customer's install of my web application. In order to do this, I need to replace a server component that is locked in memory until IIS is stopped.

Is there an EASY way to have Express restart IIS and the corresponding www service? At the very least, can Express DETECT that it is running and allow me to prompt the user to stop it?

Thanks,
Rob

Do a search on "GetObject("IIS://LocalHost/W3SVC/1/Root")

You can use a VBScript to unload your site.
