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...Web Deployment Project outputs too many files from Web Application Project
I just downloaded and installed the final releases of the Web Deployment Project and Web Application Project. I created a simple Web Application Project, and then a Web Deployment Project for that web app.
When I click Build on the Web Deployment Project context menu, the build succeeds, but in the target folder, I find more files than are necessary. Included are the vbproj, "My Project" folder, "obj" folder, and the files within those folders.
This may be naive, but I was expecting the same results as right-clicking the Web App project and choosing Publish; just with the add...Web Application Projects with Web Deployment Projects...
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 Application Project and Web Deployment 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.
I add a Web Deployment project and keep the defaults, and the build is broken. Whenever I try to build, I get the following error:

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:

I have a solution containing 40+ projects including a Web Application Project and Web Deployment Project. When I compile the solution excluding the WDP, it is successful. When compiling including the WDP, it fails. The failures are odd because they include compile time errors with the user controls code-behind complaining ala:

I need to compile a couple different configurations Release/Debug/etc. based on custom compilation constatns. My web pages code is based on the custom compilation constants. I wanted to modify web.config before compilation automatically, because the conditional Compilation Constants settings are moved to the web.config in VS 2005. The only way I found is to modify web.config before the build and modify back after the build is done. I created a custom class derived from Microsoft.Build.Utilities.Task. This class overrides the Execute() method. In this method I modify the specifed web.con...Difference Between Web Application Projects and Web Deployment Projects
....what's the difference? Web App Projects sounds like everythng I want, but what does it do that Web Deployment doesn't?
First of all, here are two highly recommended blog posts that you may want to read about Web Application Projects and Web Deployment Projects.
In a nutshell, a web deployment project is associated with a web site project and is a step that you may want to take before your deploy your application. You can do post processing on ...Web Application Projects & Web Deployment Projects
What is the difference between both? I can't find the answer!
A Web Application Project (WAP) is simply another project model aprt from the default Website Model in VS 2005. WAP is similar to VS 2003 web project model.
Whereas a Web Deployment Project(WDP) is used to deploy a web project and provides flexiblity while deployment. See this link for details:

Hi.It seems as if you don't have a "traditional" web project (i.e. not a Web Application Project) in your solution, the "Add Web Deployment Project..." option is not available for a Web Application Project. However, once you add a "non-Web-Application-Project-web-project", the option appears.Thought I'd share if anyone else runs into the same issue. (Or maybe it's just my environment)

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?

Hi, we ran into this issue yesterday evening when we were trying to deploy new code on production box. It was running previous version of our app that was VS 2005 Web Site project, but the new version was migrated into Web App project. New build was tested on sandbox and even on the same production machine (but under different, non public web site configured there) and was working fine. However, when we deployed on production web site, we got this error:Compiler Error Message: CS0246: The type or namespace name 'ProfileCommon' could not be found (are you missing a using directi...Confused by Resource Management with Web Deployment Project for Web Application Project
