First, I'll humbly admit that A.) I'm a programmer and B.) I'm asking this for someone else so I have almost no first hand experience with what I'm asking.
We would like to be able to write an installer to configure and start IIS 7 (if not already started), as well as load a custom programmed DLL. It takes following some fairly arduous instructions to just do it on one computer.
What we need to be able to do is script this installation, could someone point us in the right direction?
