Advanced Properties for IIS Application Pool


i want to write a Setup which will also install a web application.
Installing the Website and also a custom ApplicationPool in IIS is running fine so far.

Now i want to set advanced properties of the WebSite and the ApplicationPool
For example, i want to set the StartMode of the ApplicationPool to AlwaysRunning.
In InstallShield this property is missing.

How can i set advanced properties of the ApplicationPool or the WebSite?

Thank you in advance.

Anything you can configure with APPCMD could be configured with a Custom Action. I tried to post an example, but it violates the security rules of this site. Send me a private email if you want an example.

Set the CA for
Deferred Execution in System Context
Install Exec Sequence After Install Files
Install Exec Condition of Not Installed
