Deploying using a different web root

P: n/a
We have a webservice that we have been deploying using the deployment
project in Visual Studio. Now we are trying to deploy this service to
a server that has multiple sites. I have looked everywhere in the
deployement project to see where I can allow the person installing to
choose the root, but I can't find anything.

Is there a way to install in a desired root using the deployment
project? or is Visual Studio installer more of a handicap than a tool?

Thanks.

Daniel.

Visual Studio 2003 Deployment Projects do not support multiple webstite.
They will only install to the default website.

If possible, you can try changing the the default web site and then
installing, then changing back. Same for uninstall.
