If you selected Skip this step at the How do you want to deploy...? dialog, you must manually create the share that the deployment will be installed to.
If you are installing the deployment package to a Web server, the Web server must be added to the Local intranet zone in Microsoft Internet Explorer. Zones are configured in Internet Explorer by selecting the Security tab of the Internet Options(available from the Tools menu). You must also Enable the following Security settings:
Automatic prompting for file downloads
For complete details on adding and configuring sites in the Local Intranet Zone, see the Microsoft Internet Explorer help files.
If you are installing the deployment package to a network share, Read access on the shared folder is required for users to be able to install and upgrade the deployed application. Shared folder permissions must be set outside of this installation.
If you selected Skip this step at the How do you want to deploy...? dialog, the Web Deployment URL dialog is displayed:
Select Configure Web URL to have the installer create the link to the deployment that will be sent out to client machines for client installations of the deployed application. This link is available to be copied at the end of the installation, if one is configured.
Do not select this option if the deployment Web site has not been configured for external access.
- In the field, enter the base URL of your deployment without the application name (for example, https://web-server/virtual-directory). The application name is automatically appended to the URL at the end of the installation.
Click Next. The Package Extraction dialog is displayed, which displays the progress of the installation.
Click Next when the extraction has completed. The General Settings dialog is displayed.
The General Settings dialog is not displayed for all modules, depending on the type of application being deployed. For example, desktop shortcuts cannot be created for the Microsoft Office add-ins so the General Settings dialog is not displayed.
Select Create Desktop Shortcuts to create a shortcut to the deployed application on the client machine when the application is first installed on the client machine.Note:
This option is only available for new deployments.
- Click Next.
