Deploy WCF in IIS 6

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I am deploying my WCF service in IIS 6.0. Usually I use XCopy to manually copy the files under the IIS folder structure, create my site and configure it.

This time around is a bit different since I am using (for the first time) Enterprise Library and am referencing the dlls into my WCF service. I've never deployed a WCF service referencing external dlls before and my thinking is that using the "Web Setup" template in Visual Studio will make the whole thing a lot easier. However I have tried but couldn't get the dlls to be deployed. I tried a work-around that worked (I am not actually sure it is a work-around) but I want to make sure that I am doing this the best way possible.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!
