Difficulty deploying Visual Studio 2008 ASP.NET 3.5 Web Application to Windows Server 2003 with .NET 3.5 installed.


 I've developed an ASP.NET Web Application using .NET 3.5.  It follows the tiered software architecture of having a DAL, BLL and Presentation Layer.  The application uses many of the AJAX Controls that can be found in the AJAX ControlToolKit i.e Collapsible Panels.  The Application can be built and launched successfully on my local machine, however any attempt to Publish it to a remote server(with Windows Server 2003 installation and .NET 3.5 installed) is met with failure.  I've tried copying the project from my local machine onto the server into a website created within IIS 6,  but this has also resulted in failure. 

The DAL contains Typed Datasets, would this have any bearing on deployment?

I've read in several forums that IIS 7 is a requirement in order to successfully delopy any .NET 3.5 Web Applications...is this true?

If it is possible to deploy a .NET 3.5 Web Application using IIS 6 could someone please detail the steps.

As a side note...a question concerning the difference, if any, regarding connectivity.  Do Typed or Untyped datasets use different means of connection to persistant storage? i.e SQL Server 2005.

Thank you.

What do you mean by "failure"? What are the actual steps you tried and the errors reported?

.NET 3.5 should work with IIS6 too.

When I first discovered that I couldn't deploy the application using Visual Studio 2008's publish option, i opted to copy all the application files onto the server.  But when I went to browse one of the pages all that was displayed was the IE default page for when there is no connection or viewable content.  I've tinkered with the configuration of the Website, changed the pool, made sure the current version of ASP.NET was used, tried assigning a new port number, i've turned on and off Windows integrated authentication, i've even tested deployment with a very simple application containing nothing but a textbox and button control to see if it was the DAL and connection to SQL Server.  Despite all this, still no success.  I am stumped!...lol

Try setting up your server so that a very simple Default.aspx (with code snippets) works correctly. Also make sure in IIS you set the web site folder as a virtual application.

Deploy 3.5 web app on .NET 3.0 web server?
Hello,I am considering developing an ASP.NET app in VS 2008 using LINQ.  I know LINQ is .NET 3.5 specific but the IIS6 web server I need to deploy to only has .NET 3.0 installed (and I can't change that).So my question: can I compile and deploy a .NET 3.5 app on a web server with .NET 3.0 on it?  If so, how - and is there any official MSFT documentation? thanks,Justin Try this out it may work, if not you won't be using Linq unless they upgrade. http://linqinaction.net/blogs/main/archive/2007/09/05/linq-support-on-net-2.0.aspx- WilliamPlease mark the most helpful rep...

Hi, i'm kinda new to the .NET 3.5 framework.. I just developed a very simple web app using Visual studio 2008 beta2, choosing ASP.NET Futures AJAX.
