Then tried to deploy it via:
The /T does a whatif - always a good idea to check first!
Then run the following when you are happy:
Got the error - "Files\IIS\Microsoft was unexpected at this time". WTF?
First off when you set the environment variable as per the txt file:
set MSDeployPath="C:\Program Files\IIS\Microsoft Web Deploy V2\"
Do NOT put the quotes in and remove the end \ i.e.
set MSDeployPath=C:\Program Files\IIS\Microsoft Web Deploy V2
What the script does is search for this variable and if it's missing, it tries to find the path in the registry via this code:
if "%MSDeployPath%" == "" (
for /F "usebackq tokens=1,2,*" %%h in (`reg query "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\IIS Extensions\MSDeploy" /s ^
findstr -i "InstallPath"`) do (
if /I "%%h" == "InstallPath" (
if /I "%%i" == "REG_SZ" (
if not "%%j" == "" (
if "%%~dpj" == "%%j" (
I have Web Deploy V2 deployed and I don't have such a registry entry? It's this piece of script that produces the error. Just comment it out and all will be sweetness and light.
