(1) MSI installs to my local "web" (2) config problems (3) strange VS installer while creating MSI
Thanks for any help on the following three issues:(1) When I put the MSI that I generated on my FTP server, it tries to install to the virtual web directory from whence it came on my local machine. (2) I then put a copy of the project directory on the web server. When I ran some of the controls on the first page, I received errors (see below) possibly having to do with web.config, but the description is so vague it's hard for me to tell. I did as I understood the instructions below but I'd appreciate resources. All references to deploying projects didn't ...MSI installer only installs aspx and web config
I created an MSI installer prog at home last night and installed at the office today.It only installed:
2) web config etc.
It didn't install the code behind or the solution files.(I had wanted to work on the project today)I assume that I can't somehow alter the MSI so that it installs ALL the files?(obviously, all the source code and solution files are at home)Do I have to wait till I get home tonight and "recreate " the MSI, so that it installs all the files?
Can someone confirm / deny?

OK, ...MSI Installation #2
I work in a lab environment where there is a need to install the Office XP
global IME packages for Chinese, Korean, Japanese. I have snapshot the
installation of these packages, however when a student tries to access this
software a Windows installer dialog box appears asking for the location of
the msi file (it also does this when logged in as an admin, however it
doesn't cause problems because admin has the required permissions). Even if
I point to the msi file location, it cannot be installed because the
students only have user privledges. If the installer doesn't go t...Inspiron 1000 install problem (11.1, 11.2, net install, dvd install)
Ok, I have a plain jane Inspiron 1000, 2ghz celeron, 256m ram, 40gig hd,
I burned 11.2 to dvd, 11.1 to dvd, tried installing both. Both get the
dreaded "cannot create repository" (i'm paraphrasing). No problem, I
download and burn 11.1, 11.2 net install's, checksums check out ok. I
go through the first part where it downloads stuff from
download.opensuse.com (or something similiar), then it fails again, not
able to install.
I get no message on the net installs. Just fails real quick with a red
box. I tried a text install, fails.
--...installing .net 1.1 framework after .net 2.0 framework has already been installed
I am configuring my server 2003 (standard edition) to host a service application that will be accessed with mobile devices. The requirement for the mobile licenses to work properly is that I install the 1.1 framework. I downloaded the redistributable file and went to install it and was prompted, "The product you are trying to install has already been installed with your operating system. Use Windows update to install the latest updates."
Through the "add/remove programs" window there is no indication the .net 1.1 framework is installed. When I navigate to C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft .NET...Web Setup .msi promting for .NET Framework 3.5 on server install, but project targets Framework 2.0
I have an .asmx web service built in VS.NET 2008 that targets the .NET Framework 2.0. I have a web setup project that packages the .asmx service into a .msi file. When I copy the install file out to the server and try to install, it states:
"This setup requires the .NET Framework version 3.5. Please install the .NET Framework and run this setup again...."
I can not install the 3.5 Framework yet out on the server, so how can I reconfigure my setup project to know to only look for the .NET Framework 2.0?
Thank you!Thank you,

My web application uses Crystal Reports so I had to create an MSI to deploy the app to my client. However, I need to give them some additional updates which will only involve a few pages.
What is the best and / or easiest ways to distribute the changes to them. Ideally, I'd like to give them just the changes. But because I used an MSI, I can't actually see the files that got copied to the client. All I have is a single MSI file. I believe my deployment allowed the site to be precompiled.
How can I determine what files I need to send to update the site?

...Create MSI installer that Installs as Web Site in IIS
Hi all, I have used Visual Studio to create an MSI package of my web site, in order to deploy it on my application server. This package installs my site as a Default Web Site in IIS. Is there any way to create a packagethat installs my site as a new Web site in IIS (i.e. not under Default Web Site)? Much ado about nothing

...Perform 2 installation using same MSI
I am using Visual Studio 2005 to create a setup project that installs a Windows Service and a Windows application on client's machine. I have two different versions of the same application that provide different functionality. Till now, we used to provide two different setups for both versions (let's say version 1 and version 2 ). Now, the requirement is to club both the versions in a single installer package and provide a dialog (similar to the one shown below) using which user can select which version he/she wants to install. I have been able to insert a dialog (using Visual ...Updated MSI files
After the 10.0.1 update, I expected the new 10.0.1 MSI's to appear in
the Program files\Novell\ZENworks\Install\downloads\msi folder, but
they did not. Am I wrong to expect the old files to be updated in this
location? I found them in two other locations on the server (which is a
bit of a waste of space): Program Files\Novell\ZENworks\cache and
my zenworks-setup has also not been updated with agents for 10.0.1...
anyway to solve this ?

news:glLPi.1...Remote Deployment Without MSI Installation?
I was wondering if it is possible and how hard it would be to remote deploy the starter kit without having to install the MSI... I want to use it on my webhost but I do not know if they would install it just for me...
I have been testing it on my local server first to see if I can do it.
I installed the MSI first to copy the files and configure the web.config file, then I copied the files somewhere else to try to set it up without using the MSI package, then uninstalled it.
Installs all files -
Copied from files created by MSI package
Creates virtual directory -
