How to choose Virtual Server in Web Setup Project?

    I am trying to figure out how to allow the user to select on which virtual
    server to install an ASP.NET web application. It seems like the default
    behavior for the web setup projects is just to install to the first virtual
    server in the list. How can I intercept that and change it?

    Ideally, I would like the user to be able to specify a base url
    (http://site.domain.com) in the installation routine, and have the installer
    install the web app to that particular virtual server.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

  2. This is a shortcoming of the web setup wizard. You can either edit the msi
    file yourself to add that functionality, or you can stop all running sites
    that appear before the site you want to install on in the metabase.
