Just to share a finding, I was getting crazy with a simple installation of a new application on Windows Server and Internet Information Server. Many applications in production with no issues, I could upload any other application, but was getting the "unable to install application" with an specific application. I could discard any permissions problem because there where no recent changes in the server. I could upload that application without problems in my development environment, in Ubuntu.
This issue was difficult to debug because with IIS you have no console to see the traceback. Finally I resorted to make a tar xvcf with the .w2p file just to see what was inside. Then I could see the offending file. It was a broken link. When uploading the package with the broken link in ubuntu, it could deal with it without problems. Seems that Windows Server and IIS can't manage it and the installation fails. I just needed to remove the broken link in my source folder, pack again the application and everything worked fine uploading in Windows/IIS. It's improbable that this happens again to anybody, but maybe someone can save some time with this post.
