How to register MIME types and file extensions to IIS?
We have a web service, for which to work a particular file extension (.jdf) needs to be registered under MIME types in IIS. Usually what we do is after installing the service (by executing setup file) we go to the particular entry under "Default Web Site" in IIS (We use Windows Vista + IIS 7) and under MIME settings manually add a MIME type. That is, we specify it as follows:
File Extension : .jdf
MIME type : text/xml
Now I'm assigned the task of automating this process. Which means this needs to be done automatically during the installation of the service. The installer is built using C# and Wix, so how can I register this using a C# code?
Please note that I'm just a beginner so any step-by-step instructions and code sample would be of great help. Thanks in advance.
