Hello All!

Newbie here!
I would like some help in creating an Installer that would automate privilege settings for IUSR and IWAM on Windows Server 00/03/08
currently I been testing and creating an installer with Pantaray Qsetup and InstallAware, Wise, but no luck.
My roadblock is the DCOM privileges on objects
Here is what I would like the installer to do.
1). Extract the files to root c:\ directory -OK
2). Move DLL files to Windows\System32 -OK
3). Auto-register the 2 .exe files in APPID - OK
4). Auto privilege <IUSR>_<IWAM> on DCOM Objects - ?
5.) For the the installer to create VD/WD for IIS 6.0/7.0 still working on it.

Any sudgestions would be appreciated. and sorry if I put it on the wrong forum! <newbie alert here>

DCOM-wise, you might want to look at the WMI interface, http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa394115(VS.85).aspx and http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa384905.aspx

This isn't a class I've played with at all but it looks promising. I dimly recollect a free d/l tool called DCOMPERM.EXE or something like that...and I also recollect that there's an ActiveX control with the same name. Googling will turn them up.

As for VDs, use the MS scripts. I turned to these when working for a software house clients and discovered that Wise would only occasionally deign to create VDs, whereas the scripts worked 100%. I think the script is now called IISVDIR.VBS (was called CreatVDir.VBS, IIRC)

Ey! thanks for the reply, dcomprem.exe i'll try that or create a vbs script that will auto allow permisions on the dcom objects.

Personally I prefer the script approach because it allows proper error-trapping, plus you can check whether your changes were applied properly by testing properties and so on. Perhaps you'd like to post back your solution when you have it? That's what this forum is all about, after all: knowledge-sharing.
