VB6 and ASP

I have an ASP app that I created with a simple text editor. It also includes a dll created with VB6. What I want to do is import? it into a VB6 IIS project in order to use the Package and Deployment Wizard for distributing it. I'm not that familiar with the VB development interface and can't quite figure out how this can be done. I don't want my code changed in any way. Can this be done?

What I want is my existing ASP files, javascript files, style sheets, and the dll packaged in a single setup file. Any suggestions?

valli an, those articles are very informative but everything seems to point to creating an ASP app from scratch within an IIS project, not a means of adding your existing files to an IIS project.

Maybe VB6 IIS project is not the solution I'm looking for.

Do you try with Visual InterDev, if you have it, which is a part of Visual Studio I suppose?

I posted this same question under ASP and didn't get any simple solutions either. It seems that I have little choice but to purchase a product like InstallShield. Too bad a general purpose application packager isn't part of the OS. I spent a day playing with Windows Installer but it appears its intended purpose is to allow network administrators to automatically distribute applications to domain users and computers.

Thanks for you help valli an. You get the points.
