Web Deployment Project / Setup Project and editable web.config
I'm working on an installer for a website. The Installer will prompt the user for the web settings such as as various AppSettings. How would you recommend implementing this? Below I describe my initial thoughts but they seem over complicated !!!! My first idea is to created the Web Deployment Project and create a web.config section overwrite file, and then using it in the usual manner to overwrite the web.config appSettings section at installation time.Property Pages->Deployment section to "appsettings=appsettings.config"Then to make this appsettings.config file editable by a Custom ...How to deploy web project in VS 2005 using web setup project

I am so confused. Want to know what is the different between Web Deployment Project and Web Setup Project. I have already completed a web application project. What am i going to use? Deployment or Setup?Thanks so much in advance!Justin
so far i know both is useful.to get the best compile options use web deploy project.to install the web on other machine/deliver to user, use web setup project (that containing web deploy project output).
Thanks Trance...Web Deployment Project & Web Setup Project source code issue...
I seem to be having an issue using the deployment add-in and the web setup project as it pertains to the source code being included in the msi package...
I have website that I have tried to deploy to a remote server where I need to run the msi installer. it runs just fine, but includes the aspx.vb files for each page.
I have tried to follow the directions on MSDN, but they do not mirror the Visual Studio 2005 Web setup project on my machine. Anyway, is there an option I am missing somewhere to NOT include the vb source files (code behind)?Warren LaFrance
Hi Warren,&nbs...Deploy project using Web Setup Project
Is there any way to set the version of .Net that the virtual direstory uses? When the msi from the Web Setup Project creates the virtual directory it seems to just set the .Net version to the version that the web site that the vertual directory was installed under....Web Deployment Project deploying files not included by Web Application Project
Recently my boss asked me to find a way to share a web site project between 2 separate projects which will only share a subset of the files in the folder. I created 2 web applications projects in the folder and eliminated the web site project. I discovered when I publish the web application projects, that it wasn't compiling the .as*x pages, so I looked into web deployment projects. The problem I'm having with web deployment projects is that when I build them from the solution configuration, it copies all the files in the web project to the deployment folder and I c...Error when Deploying and Signing Web Application project with Web Deployment project
I have a Web Application project that needs to be deployed and signed using Web Deployment projects. When I delete the global.ascx file I'm able to do the deployment and sign the output assembly. The error I'm getting without signing the assemblies is "An error occurred when merging assemblies: ILMerge.Merge: The target assembly 'HelloWorld' lists itself as an external reference.” .
Global.ascx or .asax?
The usual cause of a signing error is when a reference is not signed. Is the global.asax.cs or .vb marked as conte...How to setup Windows authentication mode for a web application deployed using a web setup project ?
would like to know if it is possible to set up the authentication mode
to "Windows Authentication" for a web application deployed on IIS using
a web setup project from Visual Studio 2005 and also how to do that. I
know that after deploying the web application using the MSI file I can
manually edit the security settings from the IIS and set the
authentication mode to "Integrate Windows authentication", but I would
like to do this at deploy time. Since I was not able to do
that, I tried an open-source project, Windows Installer XML v3.0 - this

Maybe I have missed something, but shouldn't there be possible to do a web deployment project of a web application project?
I have followed this guide http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa479568.aspx, but I can't get it to work without building the web application project first. With TFSBuild it fails even if I build the web application first.
The error looks like this:

Does anyone have any experience in using the Web Deployment Project pieces to deploy Web Application style projects (rather than the web site projects model)?
We have a rather larger eCommerce site that uses WAP model (it was originally a website model, but we ran into so many problems with compile times, temp .dll file lockups at compile etc that we moved it to WAP a long time ago).
What's strange is that the project compiles fine normally when we're not using the Web Deployment Project and everything is fine. However, the second we hook the WDP stuff up, we'r...Web Deployment Project with Web Application Project
I currently have a working Solution that contains 3 VB class library projects and one Web Application Project and it is working fine. I would like to use the web.config replacement functionality from the Web Deployment Projects.
