Personal Web Site Starter Kit (Visual Studio 2005) default document question


I'm using VS 2005's Personal Web Site Starter Kit to start a new web site. Once I clicked ok to create the web site by the starter kit and got SQL Server 2005 installed, I pressed Ctl + F5. I was abled to see the web site right away. The default document is Default.aspx.

I would like to add a new home page to the website, so I was trying to change the default document to be another .aspx file. However, as there is no IIS virtual path set to it, I am not sure how to change the default document.

Could anyone give me some help? Thanks.

Based on your description, I think you want to set another .aspx page as default page when you try to run your website, right?

If so, we can set the page that we want to run firstly as Start Page by right clicking that page and selecting "Set As Start Page" in Visual Studio.

If we deploy it on IIS, we can add that page name to Default Document list (enter website properties window in IIS and click Documents tab, and then click Add button to add it).


I look forward to hearing from you.

Personal Web Site Starter Kit with SQL 2005 already installed

Question about using MS Web Deployment Projects with Visual Studio 2005
Hello,I am using Web Deployment Projects with Visual Studio 2005 to compile my 2.0 application to a single DLL file. The problem I have noticed that the App_Theme folder of the final build  under the web application release folder missed the skin file. I suspect that the skin file has been built inside the single DLL. For changing the skin easily, I prefer to exclude the skin file from the DLL. So I can change the skin without touching the DLL. Is any way that I can build the single DLL but without the skin file?Here is the Deployment Project URL.http://msdn.micro...
