The error states that your server is missing the Microsoft Web Deploy Tool.

 


 

Resolution

You can manually download the Web Deploy installer (x64 or x86) from http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd569059(WS.10).aspx onto your server/VPS and manually run the installer.

Alternatively, you can install the Web Deployment Tool using the Microsoft Web Platform Installer found at http://www.microsoft.com/web/downloads/platform.aspx

If you are unable to complete either installation for any reason please contact our technical support team via email (support@appliedi.net), phone (1-866-706-8691) or live chat (www.appliedi.net).
