Does anyone here have experience to custom the following requirement.
By default the installation wizard intall the app on the default website and default virtual dir (C:\inetpud\wwwroot). What I would like to achieve is have the web setup installer silent install the package and install the package under the same name virtual
dir specify on the msi name (eg. InstallName_1.0.001) since we are having automated versioning build and generated the version msi.
Any tips to roll out the above requirement using custom actions or ??

Web Setup project installs the website into default virtual directory such as "C:\Inetpub\wwwroot". If we want to install the website to another location, we can create Custom Action to create virtual directory that is specified by "TARGETDIR" of Web Setup
project. In order to provide user with dialog where user can input target directory, we can use Orca.exe.

I look forward to receiving your test results.
