If you are adding a 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

  • File download

  • Font download


For complete details on adding and configuring sites in the Local Intranet Zone, see the Microsoft Internet Explorer help files.

If you are adding or updating a Web Server deployment, the Configure Virtual Directory dialog is displayed:

  1. The default Deployment Folder path is displayed. Click Change to select a different folder.

    If you are updating an existing deployment, you cannot change the Deployment Folder. If you create a new instance with a different Deployment Folder, the old deployment is not updated and the package must be redeployed to client machines under the new Deployment Folder location.

    The Deployment Folder is the folder to which the application files are copied. This folder is configured as a virtual directory, to be mounted by the selected web server.


    Files in the Deployment Folder selected are overwritten.

  2. Select the Web Site to create the virtual directory under from the drop-down list.

    If you are updating an existing instance, you cannot change the Web Site.

  3. Enter a name for the Virtual Directory in the field provided. This is the name of the virtual directory created under the web server selected.

    If a virtual directory with the same name already exists, the existing virtual directory is configured to point to the Deployment Folder selected. If you are updating an existing instance, you cannot change the Virtual Directory.

  4. Select a Protocol from the drop-down list. This allows you to configure the installed application to use the https protocol if an HTTPS binding is available.

    If you are updating an existing instance, you cannot change the Protocol.

  5. Enter the Host Name of the Web Site selected, or accept the default host name presented. In some cases, such as with HTTPS bindings, the default value may need to be changed to match the host name in the certificate.

    If you are updating an existing instance, you cannot change the Host Name.

  6. Click Next. The Package Extraction dialog is displayed, which displays the progress of the installation.
  7. Click Next when the extraction has completed. The General Settings dialog is displayed, but the Create Desktop Shortcuts option is only available for new deployments.

    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.

  8. Click Next. Go to the Service Location and Deployment Configuration steps to complete the installation.
