I am converting a web application from VS 2008 to VS 2012, need to create an install package (msi file) that can install my web project application to our internal web site, but there does not have “web setup project” for me to add the setup project.  

I have download InstallShield Limited Edition 2013 but it created the msi looks like a windows install package, not web install package, it shows the Destination folder is “C:\Program Files (x86)\....” but no other choice,  and do not have feature to select site, virtual directory and application pool.

Hi,

In VS2012 Microsoft have provided feature to create web package, you can follow the steps below,

1.Right click on your project and select Publish
2.Create a new profile for your Web Deploy package
3.Specify the path where the package should go (must end with a .zip)
4.Click Publish

Refer : http://blogs.msdn.com/b/webdev/archive/2012/08/09/how-to-create-web-deploy-packages-in-visual-studio-2012.aspx

Hope this helps

Is there any other way to deploy the web package?  I need to install it to the internal web site only.  I don't like to create a new profile.
