Benefits of creating a Web Deployment project for a Setup project for a website vs a Web Setup project
I'm creating an installer for a website.The only thing I require as input from the user (in Custom Actions) is settings for the web.config. My initial approach was to create a Deployment project from my web project ans use this as input to the Setup project.Couldn't I use a Web Setup project instead of a Web Deployment + Setup project to do the same thing?Issues I have found with the Web Deployment is that I cannot edit it's contents at installation time, I'm taking user input at installation time to write to the web.config that the Installer uses but of course this file is embedded in the W...How to deploy web project in VS 2005 using web setup project

I'm working on an installer for a website. The Installer will prompt the user for the web settings such as as various AppSettings. How would you recommend implementing this? Below I describe my initial thoughts but they seem over complicated !!!! My first idea is to created the Web Deployment Project and create a web.config section overwrite file, and then using it in the usual manner to overwrite the web.config appSettings section at installation time.Property Pages->Deployment section to "appsettings=appsettings.config"Then to make this appsettings.config file editable by a Custom ...so confused, different between Web Deployment Project and Web Setup Project

Thanks Trance...Web Deployment Project & Web Setup Project source code issue...
I seem to be having an issue using the deployment add-in and the web setup project as it pertains to the source code being included in the msi package...
I have website that I have tried to deploy to a remote server where I need to run the msi installer. it runs just fine, but includes the aspx.vb files for each page.
I have tried to follow the directions on MSDN, but they do not mirror the Visual Studio 2005 Web setup project on my machine. Anyway, is there an option I am missing somewhere to NOT include the vb source files (code behind)?Warren LaFrance

would like to know if it is possible to set up the authentication mode
to "Windows Authentication" for a web application deployed on IIS using
a web setup project from Visual Studio 2005 and also how to do that. I
know that after deploying the web application using the MSI file I can
manually edit the security settings from the IIS and set the
authentication mode to "Integrate Windows authentication", but I would
like to do this at deploy time. Since I was not able to do
that, I tried an open-source project, Windows Installer XML v3.0 - this

I found there is a limit to either the total file size, the number of files and/or the size of individual files added to a web setup project in VS.NET.
I am trying to add ~2.7GB of MapInfo tables to a project, which is more than some specified limit. One MapInfo index file is 500 MB, which also seem to exceed some limit.
The error message in VS.NET is the following:
- Z:\app_name\app_name.vdproj Could not find file 'C:\Data\DAV_ADR.IND'
'Not enough storage is available to complete this operation.'
Has anyone experienced something similar and do you know of any workarounds exc...How to programablly control the 'Project Output' in Setup Project of vs.net?
My solution has several projects, some are windows applications and some are web applications. I hope user can select the apps which he wants to install during the installation. I create a Setup Project in vs.net and added "primary output" and other related resources of those projects in. I also added some dialogs and created custom actions. I can execute the my script (sql script) in installer class, but still don't know how to control the installation of each project in my code. I mean whether to install or not.
