Uninstalling Web Sites and Virtual Directories
InstallShield 2009 » Internet Information Services
Web sites that are created by an installation are never removed unless both of the following conditions are true:
- The Web site no longer contains virtual directories.
- The Delete Web Site on Uninstall check box for the Web site on the General tab in the Internet Information Services view is selected.
If a Web site is associated with a component, the Delete Web Site on Uninstall check box for the Web site corresponds with the Permanent setting for that component in a Basic MSI, InstallScript MSI, or Web project, or with the Uninstall setting for that component in an InstallScript project. That is, if you select or clear the Delete Web Site on Uninstall check box for a Web site, InstallShield automatically updates the value of the components Permanent setting or Uninstall setting, as appropriate.
If a component is uninstalled, all of its Web sites and virtual directories are uninstalled. A component is not uninstalled if it is configured to be permanent. For more information, see Specifying Whether a Components Files and Other Associated Data Are Uninstalled During Uninstallation.
