I have a .NET web application that users will be running on their own servers. The installer I am writing will provide the user with a default installation directory.
My question is what is the optimal default directory for installing a third party web application in IIS?
My feeling is that there are two good choices:
<IIS Doc Root>\<product>
Using <"IIS Doc Root">\ looks to be the easiest for workgroup or departmental style installation but does not seem to be a "professional" as the \Program Files option.
This is for a product that is targeted at medium sized business and/or departments/divisions of large companies.
In the end the files can be installed anywhere the user wants but I want the default installation experience to be as smooth as possible.
