We have a web app requirement which requires msi or exe setup package to be created so that the application can be installed on various customer sites. Web application is basically an order placing system where customer can place an order, view past orders
etc. It uses SQL Server 2005.
The application works perfectly on development environment. BUT, when I create the websetup.msi or setup.exe and install on local PC I get
Server Application Unavailable Error. I tried to install the msi on serveral other XP machines and same problem. I followed this article :
Can anyone please advice me what have I missed?

test to see if a virtual directory is created?

Yep,virtual directory is there. All the aspx files are there as well.
Do i need to use deployment package and input to websetup? Not sure what's the difference between ASP.NET Deployment Tool and WebSetup. I know that websetup creates msi but why do we need the other one...

I managed to solve this problem after reading few articles. For those who may come across the problem, what I did was created a Deployment Project first and input it to the WebSetup Project.
