Configuring Advanced IIS Settings

InstallShield 2020

Project:This information applies to the following project types:

Basic MSI
InstallScript MSI
Merge Module

Note:The advanced IIS settings apply to IIS 6 and earlier. IIS 7 ignores these settings.

When you select a Web site, application, or a virtual directory in the Web Sites explorer in the Internet Information Services view, the right pane exposes the most common IIS settings. You can use the Advanced area at the bottom of the right pane to configure other IIS settings that are not exposed in the other areas.

To configure a setting that is not exposed in the Internet Information Services view:

1. In the View List under Server Configuration, click Internet Information Services.
2. In the Web Sites explorer, select the Web site, application, or virtual directory whose advanced settings you want to configure.
3. In the Other IIS Properties setting, click the ellipsis button (...). The Other IIS Properties dialog box opens.
4. In the property list, select the property whose value you want to change, and then click the Change Value button. The Edit IIS Metabase Value dialog box opens.
5. In the Value box, specify the new value.

If you change the default value for any advanced property, InstallShield adds the property, the value that you specify, and the additional required information to the ISIISProperty table. For more information, see ISIISProperty Table.
