IIS creates the web.config file automatically

We are not including the web.config file as part of component and wonder to see how the web.config file generated in target installation path

Is IIS creates the web.config file automatically?. If so, Is there any option to disable web.config file generation automatically.

also seeing this behavior --> installshield 2012, onto windows server 2008 R2 - not including a file named WEB.CONFIG, but seeing the file after installation

wondering the same thing - what process is creating the WEB.CONFIG - is it INSTALLSHIELD when creating a virtual director and/or application? or is it something in IIS that detects a "missing" file and sticks one in there?

and regardless of what is responsible, is it possible to disable that "feature" ???
