For all your non-technical questions.

I realize that IIS7 support has been added to IA already, but when I read this post and saw how important this specific feature was to you and how much it cost you to not have it, I'd like to offer a bit of general advice if a similar situation like this comes up in the future: You can write your own plug-ins for IA to do whatever you want it to do. I'm generally glad to wait for the features to come out on IA's time table. But when I have business demands that don't fit within their time table, I roll up my sleeves and add the functionality myself (even if only as a temporary solution until IA comes out with official support the feature).

Hind sight is always 20/20. At the time, InstallAware assured us it was coming. It didn't make sense to duplicate work. By the time we realized it wasn't going to happen, it was too late to build anything.

We pay for dev tools like InstallAware so we can focus on our core competencies. If I would have had to go learn their API to write a plugin, I would have been wasting dev resources which I could have otherwise used elsewhere.

I could have also went to InstallShield and sprung the $3K to get the solution I needed. But I was given assurances by the company... so I stuck by them.

Generally InstallAware has been great in fixing stuff for us. This was one of those exceptions that bit us in the ass.

Bygones are bygones though. We've moved on and have it working as we want in IIS7. Well.. short of the 64bit bug we just found. But I would expect they will have a workaround or fix shortly.

Besides this aforementioned 64 bit bug, what about IIS 7.5?

As you can see in the attached MHT file, I'm not being able to access the website that my installer creates on Windows 7 32 bit.
The website appears in IIS, but it can not be open in the browser.
Strange thing is that this same exact MSIcode commands work just fine on Windows XP:

Code: Select all

           Comment: Gets the Index for the Site and Creates a Virtual Directory
           Get IIS Index for Site "Site da Web padrão" into SITE_INDEX
           if Variable SITE_INDEX Equals 0
             Get IIS Index for Site "Default Web Site" into SITE_INDEX
           end
           if Variable SITE_INDEX Equals 0
             Set Variable SITE_INDEX to 1
             Comment: MessageBox: $TITLE$ Installation, Setup could not find your IIS "Default Web Site". This website is needed to complete the View Web configuration. Please check your IIS configuration and try again later.
           end
           Create Virtual Folder "$WEBSERVER_DIRECTORY$" in IIS Site #$SITE_INDEX$, pointing to physical location $APP_DESTDIR$\\Web
           Set IIS Site Property "Startup Type" to Automatic in site # $SITE_INDEX$/
           Start IIS Site #$SITE_INDEX$


Am I doing something wrong or is this an IA9 known issue?

Thanks in advance!

Please post technical questions outside of the pre-sales forum. There are no known issues with IIS support (7.x, 64 bit inclusive) in InstallAware 9 at this time.
