Hi All,

I have one application which depends with IIS 5.0 Windows Component... and now the problem is like in the machine i am going to deploy the package which does not have IIS 5.0 installed in it. So if we want to install this component means we need to go and install it manually for every machine. As per my knowledge we are not suppose to package or repackage the Windows components type of things.

Suggest me how can i go a head with this IIS 5.0.

Thanks in Advance.

I have packaged IIS 5.1 a while back

you will need to use sysocmgr.exe to install and uninstall the IIS components

install IIS from the add/remove programs >> windows components

this is what I did

if I can remember you will have 2 folders 1386 and IIS answer files
these were copied to the root of c

created a blank .wsi

copied the folders to c: in the wsi

used a custom action for the install and uninstall of the components

sysocmgr.exe /i:c:\winnt\inf\sysoc.inf /u:"C:\Tools\IIS Answer Files\IIS Install.TXT" /q

sysocmgr.exe /i:c:\winnt\inf\sysoc.inf /u:"C:\Tools\IIS Answer Files\IIS Remove.TXT" /q

there are some reg keys created when you install IIS that you will need to add to your package

I also had problems installing the msi because it was prompting for the cd
but I worked out I had to remove all the back slashes from the reg keys created by the IIS components via a vbscript CA
