I mentioned this in passing last week, but I’ve updated my simple Web Configuration Utility to provide better support for IIS 7 and setting up Application Pools and .NET versions properly.
The tool is meant as a quick configuration tool that can be packaged with an application so it’s quick to set up a virtual directory, directory permissions and if necessary setting SQL Server/MSDE by adding accounts and or configuring the authentication mode.
I set up a lot of local Web sites on my local machine and often for clients when training and while I feel at home in the IIS Service manager (which is much nicer in IIS 7 BTW), it’s still so much faster to simply plop this utility into the virtual and run it. More importantly though for demos I often ship this EXE along with the app and the configuration file it creates. If somebody wants to install the application on IIS it’s typically just running the application and clicking ‘Set All’ or run in command line mode.
Anyway – it’s free and you are free to re-distribute it… This version requires .NET 2.0.
