View Full Version : Install Webservice into IIS

12-22-2009, 02:18 PM
I do have to write an installer to add a webservice to IIS and not quite know where to start with InstallShield 2008. Here are my first questions regarding the installation of an ASP.NET based webservice:

Is it possible to install IIS right from InstallShield or is there a check to know if IIS is installed?
The webservice needs, depending on the IIS version, additional modules, such as Basic Authentication on IIS7. Is it possible to add the IIS modules, or at least detect if they are present?
Is there any kind of Installer prefereable (InstallScript, MSI, InstallScript MSI,...)?

No idea?

I would be especially interested in knowing how to "manage" the modules of IIS. How can I detect if all the required modules (i.e. Basic Authentication) are present on various IIS (IIS 5, IIS 6, IIS 7 and IIS 7.5) and how would I add the missing ones?
