Installshield - installing a web application and SQL
Posted on 2011-09-09
Hi - I'm coming back to Installshield 2010 after a long time not using it and can't remember how to get a web application to install correctly.
I have 2 problems:-
1> I have defined a new web site under Server Configuration>Internet Information Services. I have set the Home Directory correctly I think but no web site appears in IIS after running the installation.
2> I am calling OnSQLLogin( nResult ); in my InstallScript (this is an Installshield MSI project). The odd thing is that some times the SQL Server dialog appears but othertimes it doesn't and I just skip that step. This dialog also asks for the initial catalog - I don't want this tio be entered by the user. As such I changed the call to use 'SQLServerSelectLogin2'.
Running this in debug I just stepped over the call - nothing happened!
