  • Web Deploy must be installed on the server

    Feb 28, 2017 11:02 AM|teejayuu1|LINK

    Hi

    My web servers are built on Windows Server 2012 R2 Core and I manage them from IIS Manager (Version 8.5.9600.16384) on a Windows Server 2012 R2 GUI server.

    On the management server there is a Web Platform Installer Icon, which when I click it I get a blank page with the text:

    The Microsoft Web Deployment Tool must be installed on the server before this feature can be used.

    The management server has the following installed on it (taken from the registry HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall):

    • Web Deployment Tool (Display Version: 1.1.0618)
    • Microsoft Web Platformer Installer 5.0 (Display Version: 5.0.50430.0)
    • Microsoft Web Deploy 3.6 (Display Version: 3.1238.1955)

    On the web server the following is installed (same reg key)

    • Web Deployment Tool (Display Version: 1.1.0618)
    • Microsoft Web Platformer Installer 5.0 (Display Version: 5.0.50430.0)
    • Microsoft Web Deploy 3.5 (Display Version: 3.1237.1764)

    What do I need to install and where to get rid of the error message?

    Thanks
    Tony

    Hi teejayuu1,

    Please check whether your web deploy 3.6 server could display deploy->import in IIS manager->right click site name->deploy. There could be something wrong when user install web deploy but IIS manager can't identity this feature. So try to install the web deploy following this link:

    Thanks for this Yuk, I can use right click > Deploy > Import Application...

    Just to clarify...as I manage all websites from a separate machine (only Management tools installed) as opposed to the Web Servers (full IIS) themselves, do I need Web Deploy installing on the machine with just Management tools installed?

    Cheers
