Do you not install Web Deploy from the Web Platform Installer?

Last updated by TiagoAraujo on 03 Jun 2013 07:20 pm (almost 9 years ago) See History

You should not Install Web Deploy from the Web Platform Installer, but instead download the installation from the IIS web site (http://www.iis.net/downloads/microsoft/web-deploy).

The reason for this is that the Web Platform Installer does not install all of the components required for continuous deployment, but the downloaded package does.
