Use a Specific User for Web Site

I am using InstallShield 2014 InstallScript Project. I am utilizing the "Server Configuration\Internet Information Services" node to create a web site for deployment -- overall seems quick and useful. However, I would like to specify a specific user for the website and corresponding virtual directories. Currently, in every installation I get the Application user (pass-through authentication) instead. Is there a way to associate a specific user via the node or does this need to be implemented programmatically via scripting upon installation?

Re: Use a Specific User for Web Site

Well, I saw that there was no response to my posting. However, what I have found out is that there is no possibility via the IIS node provided by InstallShield. So, what I did was to create the my web site via the IIS node and then to specify a specific user instead of accepting the Application user (pass-through authentication) was to run AppCmd.EXE commands to set the users with passwords to the web site and corresponding virtual directories within the web site. In-conjunction with the use of the SdLogonUserInformation dialog to create or enter a windows user and password; Also, to use properties to replace the entered windows user and password to the appropriate scripting in the AppCmd.Exe commands.

Use Properties

Hi, yes you can. You only need to fill the fields SpecificUser name and Password with properties like [USER_NAME] and [USER_PWD] in the AppPoolSettings.
