Hi Friends,

I want to install a MSI file through my webapplication, for that i create an application in visualstudio and run the app it's working fine.
But when i host the webapp into IIS it was not working. means after button click it is just loading for hours.
Below is my code on buttonclick.

protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
System.Diagnostics.Process process1 = new System.Diagnostics.Process();
process1.StartInfo.WorkingDirectory = Server.MapPath("/Installer1");
process1.StartInfo.FileName = Request.MapPath("Demo.msi");
process1.StartInfo.Arguments = "USER=abc PASSWORD=123 VERSION= ";
process1.StartInfo.LoadUserProfile = true;

Can anybody help me in my situation.

Where do you thin this MSI will run? Client? Server? (no prize for correct answer!)
Did you checked if IIS user has the proper rights to run the MSI?
Check events (Event Viewer) on server - you find there some answers...

I'd also like to add that you need to make sure that your AppPool has access to your directory.
