WebSetup (MSI) Error - Faulting application aspnet_wp.exe RRS feed

  • User-1898331389 posted

     Greetings:

     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 :
    http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2007/06/15/tip-trick-creating-packaged-asp-net-setup-programs-with-vs-2005.aspx

    Can anyone please advice me what have I missed?

     Thank you.

     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.

    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...

     

    Thank you.
