View Full Version : evaluating express

03-08-2004, 01:54 PM

I'm looking at express as we would like to automate installation of our Web applications.

We need to...

- install on IIS
- (allow users to FTP in to their IIS server if possible if they don't have direct access to the server)
- create the IIS virtual folder
- locate the database folder and put the app .mdb there
- set various permissions for IUSR_anonymous account (permissions vary on each folder)
- finally, follow a brief interview for specific application settings (this is not required since we include a web-based wizard)

I have basically gotten most aspects to work with Express, except for locating the db folder, setting permissions and FTP'ing to the server if they're unable to directly access the Web server. Can anyone tell me if I can implement this functionality with scripting -- or will I need to use DevStudio?
