How do I create setup & deployment for n-tier multi-project soln?

P: n/a
Need to build complete deployment package for a multi-project enterprise soln
consisting of 3 web apps, 20+ web services, 2 windows services, 61 component
dll's and 4 databases.
Everything except the databases are in one Build Solution.
Project Output must be structured into unified Application Space with
folders for webs and winservices in order to allow instancing on the
middleware server.
MyEnterpise/Instance1
Services/
Service1
Service2
Webs/
WebApp1/bin/component dlls
WebApp2/bin/component dlls
WebServiceContainer/*.asmx

Note: webs do not go to 'Default Web Site' in IIS

Currently building 3rd generation Install of this product for national
customer base using Wise 8.0 and in house .net utilities to configure IIS,
install win services, setup security model etc... This is a kludge and would
prefer a modular Entreprise Type Install similar to the VSNET Install. How
can I go about designing and implementing this?

Hi,

First of all, I would like to confirm my understanding of your issue. From
your description, I understand that you need to know how to create
installation package to deploy your enterprise solution. If there is any
misunderstanding, please feel free to let me know.

It is a hard mission to create setup packages to deploy so many projects.
Here I have found some walkthoughs and documents on deploying all kinds of
projects on windows platform. Hope this helps.

Kevin,
I work for a large financial software company. We produce many solutions for
banks and financial institutions - Windows based Sales and Teller front ends,
middleware engines, plus back end core systems that run on AS400s. The
installation I am describing is for the middleware servers in an n-tier
solution. I am familiar with the hello world examples that are in the links
you provided. They are not architected for the complexity of a true
enterprise solution that requires security and network modeling etc. I know
this is not a cookie cutter type question and I really looking for a more in
depth response. The look and feel of the VSNet Installation is what we are
trying to get to.

Hi surfdog,

I'm sorry but this is only what I can find for setup project. I'm also not
quite experienced for setup projects. For setup issues, you can try to post
in microsoft.public.dotnet.framework.setup newsgroup besides posting here.
There will be more professionals who can give you more information and
suggestions in this aspect. Sorry for the inconvenience. Thanks for your
understanding.
