Here is my question.
I wrote a website, and not I am trying package it with a setup program (msi), so I created a "Web Setup Project" and specify outputs as the standard tutorial on this. And then I'd add custom action to msi which modify Web.config file during msi installation. Output looks ok, but msi install the website under "C:\Inetpub\wwwroot" folder, and I don't have control on it. I followed an example (http://www.codeproject.com/KB/install/ChangeVDirWebSetupProject.aspx) use orca.exe to remove WEBCA_EvaluateURLsMB, WEBCA_EvaluateURLs and WEBCA_EvaluateURLsNoFail from corresponding tables in msi and provides TARGETDIR value while calling the msi file. And then I fall in a problem, either the custom action is not called any more or I get a error "Configuration file cannot be created".
