Well Installshield can do what you want in terms of copy the files etc. Any configuration can then be done within a script or an EXE that you execute at the end of the install shield script.

asp gets installed with iis.. mainly you simply need to register a file asp.dll on the machine
and map .asp as the extention for the dll to use.. also add mime types in iis for asp..

asp is not a software , that needs to be installed .
you need to have servers (iis/pws/chilisoft) to enable asp files to run in the browsers thru that server via the http protocol

eg :
http://servername/myasp.asp

Hi,
I think there has some misunderstanding.
I know you can deploy asp application by copy to a folder and setting it to be executable in IIS. But you see, it'd be more convenient if it has a way to package your asp files into something like MYAPPSINSTALL.EXE and then when I execute it, it automatically creates a folder to copy my asp files, register itself to be excutable, perform some database configuration if needed.
If you have programmed ASP.NET, you can build this set-up in VS.NET. I'd like to have the same tool for ASP but smaller.
Thanks for your all comments,

How about compiling your asp files and make them into an executable file?

Hi hongjun,
Thanks for your help, the tool is very interesting but it seems that it does not allow to working with IIS, I cannot compel it to create a new folder and make it executable.

OK Steve, let me discribe the things :
1. MyFolder name CMS include following files :
- default.asp
- list.asp
- database.mdb and so forth.
2. I used an ODBC connection to database.db
What I want to do ?
1. Package all of these into a file, e.g : setup.exe
2. when executing setup.exe on a host running IIS 5.0, it has to do :
- copy all the files into a folder name, e.g : also CMS.
- register CMS to IIS so that it is executable.
- register the ODBC connection.

I appreciate to all your help.

Hi all,
Thank you very much for your comments. If possible, could the moderators help me to divide the points to every one who answered me, I do appreciate their willing to help.
About my problem with ASP Installer, in fact, I have found a solution and I'd like to share with you. I got the solution when I'm studying an .NET application named IBuySpy. It used Windows Hosting Script to create IISWebVirtualDir objects. To have more details, you should refer to the installer of IBuySpy.
Thanks and regards,
DucTH
