There is a huge section in the help file on how to set up a web application in an installshield project, and on how to configire and install it to IIS.

Just use the help index and go to the section on IIS.

Generally you will need to have a virtual directory specified on a website that will map to the physical directory that your web application resides in. You will also need to either create an application pool or add it to the default application pool for the website. Look at the help file on how to do these things as it goes into a good level of detail.

Hey Kedarnath, did you manage to resolve the problem with the expired licence when building via TFS? I have a legit LE licence through Visual Studio but it doesn't seem to be seeing it 😞 I can build the installer via Visual Studio but all my automated builds fail, argh!
