The Survey Project has created a custom XML feed that makes it possible to use the Web Platform Installer 3.0 to install the Survey application in an automated way.  You can find the instructions at the Survey Community site at:

The Microsoft Web Platform Installer 3.0 (Web PI) is a free tool that makes getting the latest components of the Microsoft Web Platform, including Internet Information Services (IIS), SQL Server Express, .NET Framework and Visual Web Developer easy.  The Web PI also makes it easy to install and run the most popular free web applications for blogging, content management and more with the built-in Windows Web Application Gallery.

Kind regards

Great news for the Survey Project webapplication!

As of today the Survey tool has been added to the Windows Web App Gallery at:

You can download and automatically install the Survey tool from this Microsoft website.

Any additional software you may need to run the Survey application (like IIS, Sqlserver, .NET 4) will be checked for and offered for installation during the process.

The Survey tool can also be found as one of the available applications through the Web Platform Installer 3.0.
The WPI is both available as a standalone application and as part of the IIS Manager.

With these changes it is no longer necessary to make use of the custom xml feed. We will keep it available for those who want to try and experiment with this option.

Kind regards
