Hello Clinton Gallagher,
I think there is some misunderstanding.
We have designed the installer for developer machines only. It is installing the project manager, which is creating the projects (web applications). These projects are migrated to the production (live) server once the develop process is over. The migration is just a ftp upload and backup/restore process of the database. This is all.
We have one more way to create projects - with the EmptyProject. You can download EmptyProject.zip file from your Client.Net account, extract it somewhere, create a virtual directory and point it to the extracted files.
We would like to thank you about sharing your ideas about the installer anyway. We think to change it - it could be a windows application which handles the OS platform configuration and the users restriction in a better way.
