InstallShield Tips and Techniques

InstallShield 2016 SP2 Issue with IIS WebSite Components – Part II

Filed under: Reference Materials — shieldmaster @ 12:48 am

After resolving the previous error that issued “Error with IISRT: -1217” within ISIISCosting standard action – essentially aborting just after the user dialogs were displayed.  Subsequent updates later I encountered the same IISRT error within ISIISCosting standard action.


The previous problem did not resurface – essentially I accidently deleted the InstallShield component that was associated with the AppPool, as shown here as component “AppPoolComponent”



No warning was given that a lIS linked component was being deleted. Evaluation of the MSI log indicated that the ISIISCosting encounted an null component. I had to identify the deleted component on the IIS pages to determine what I had accidently deleted.


So there are two possible error conditions that result in the same ISIISCosting error!


Hope this helps!
