IIS: Installing a web site if port is already taken


Install a Web Site on port 80 that is usually configured with a default web site on Windows 2008.

Installation Log:
1: Check if site has port number: 80
1: GetBindingsCollection
1: Searching for binding element
1: GetPortFromBindingInfo: *:80:
1: Found site with the same port number.
1: Website exists.

Usually if I try to install a web site manually a window asking if I would like to add a duplicate port binding pops up:

but when trying the same operation with MSI - it just uses the existing default web site, instead of creating a new one.

Can anyone give me instructions on how to create a new site with duplicate port binding with installshield?

Thank you and Brg.
