Install Shield Limited Edition

I am using Install Shield Limited Edition (with Visual Studio 2010) and I have just finished creating an installer.

The installer defines the installation folder and copies the files and folders under the installation directory.

It also creates a web site and a web application.

The problem I am facing is that when I run the installer file the installer runs upto a point where it has created an installation folder and successfully copied all the required files.

It then goes about creating a website & web application under IIS and that's where it fails and starts rolling back.

Upon reviewing the verbose installation log file, I see the following errors:

InstallShield 17:29:09: Found element with property 'name' value of: DefaultAppPool
InstallShield 17:29:09: Application pool Enable32bitAppOnWin64 value is 'false'
InstallShield 17:29:09: SetAspversion: machine is 64-bit and IIS running in a bit mode other than the currently selected mode
InstallShield 17:29:09: Error with IISRT: -2172

Log shows "Application pool Enable32bitAppOnWin64 value is 'false'", can you set that value to True and give a try again?
