Automated setups utility for a .NET web based application

I'm looking for an automated setup application that would allow the user to download my web based application, run the setup and have it automatically installed on the local server.
What I need is the following functionality out of it:

- Deploy the files in a folder
- Set the folder as a web application with all it's permissions
- Create the database structure (SQL server)
- Modify the web.config file with connection string etc.

Is there such a solution out there or do I need to write a custom package for this ? Thanks in advance.

Can a .NET web based intranet application call a windows based .NET application?
   Is it possibly to have an asp.net 2.0 application call/invoke a windows desktop application written in .NET 2.0? We have a .NET 1.0 windows desktop application that was written in C#.

Deploying .Net application with datawindow .Net objects
Hi I=92ve been testing datawindow .net for our company by building a small working application using the Datawindow .Net tutorial.

[PATCH lib/Net/Config.pm, MANIFEST, t/lib/Mock/Socket.pm, lib/Net/Config.t] Add Tests for Net::Config
Here's a test suite for Net::Config. In the process of writing this, I've fixed an apparent bug that prevented single values from becoming array references when necessary. I think it's right, but perhaps Graham should weigh in on this. In the process, with some advice from perl-qa, I've added a mock object so the test could control the output of Socket::inet_ntoa() and Socket::inet_aton(). t/lib/Mock/ seemed like as good a place as any. I'm happy to rework this patch if it personally offends anyone whose opinion matters. :) -- c --- lib/Net/~Config.pm S...
