Re: Can we install IIS using Install Shield setup

IIS is generally part of windows, and thus cannot be installed by an external setup.exe. One common option is to have your install check for the presence of IIS and refuse to install if it is not there.

Re: Can we install IIS using Install Shield setup

I know other customers have launched sysocmgr.exe as part of their setup. You might want to search these forums for examples.

Install IIS via setup

Hi Narayana

You can install IIS via installshield.

For windows 7, use:
DISM.exe /Online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:IIS-WebServer /FeatureName:IIS-WebServerRole /FeatureName:IIS-IIS6ManagementCompatibility /Featurename:<>...............

For Vista, use pkgmgr with an unattended .xml file:

Start /w PkgMgr.exe /n:" + '":\Unattend.xml"

Re: Can we install IIS using Install Shield setup

I've always been against installing windows components for various reasons but now with the way Win 7 / Server 2008 can more easily be scripted to do the job I wonder if my opinion should change.

Anyone have thoughts on this?
