Copy Web Site Visual Studio 2005

I have a Web Site that I developed on a old laptop from which I used to copy the web site to the web server. Recently I was given a new laptop on which I start to work. I have set up the same web site on this new laptop and done some new work on it. Now as I need to copy the new work to the web server, I see a bunch of question marks on the left of both panes. Please advise what I should do? Thanks.

Hi thuhue,

I’m afraid I cannot understand your concern exactly. Visual Studio 2005 has its build-in lightweight development server so that we can copy/move the folder of web project easily without remapping the virtual directory in IIS.

So please describe more detailed about the issue of “see a bunch of question marks on the left of both panes”. I think a screenshot will be great helpful. Thanks for your cooperation.

The web site used to be served by an older development box. I guess that confuses the new developemnt laptop and question marks display and all files are tagged "new" in both panes. I just copy files from the development laptop to the web server. The next thing I want to try is "Publish web site". Should I "Publish web site" after "Copy web site" or do only one of the two? Thanks.

Hi thuhue,

Just choose one utility.  Please let me introduce a little about the Copy Web Site Tool and Publish Web Site Utility.

    * Copy Web Site Tool is appropriate for web site project. You can right click the project in Solution Explorer, and then select “Copy Web Site…”. This tool just copy files of your project to the remote server, those files will be dynamically compiled by ASP.NET at runtime.

    * Publish Web Site Utility is available for web site project and web application. You can right click the project in Solution Explorer, and then select “Publish Web Site” or “Publish…”. This tool not only copies the need files to the remote server, but also compiles the web site.

For your reference, the following link includes detailed information about these tools. I hope it is helpful to you.

Web Site Deployment in Visual Web Developer

In addition, after you copy the project to another machine, the timestamps of the files are changed, so that files on the client and the server are all tagged as “new”. For more information about the synchronize files feature provided by Copy Web Site tool, please see this link at your convenience.

According to the VS 2005 copy Web Site status and log the copy transaction...

Express editions lack some IDE/UI features, but code you write will work everywhere.Thanks------------------------------------------------------------This posting is...

Running Visual Studio .NET 2003 and Visual Studio 2005 on the same machine.
Hi there,   I have many projects i develop and continue to maintain on my server. Visual Studio .NET 2003 is currently installed and is what i use to do this. I'd really like to install Visual Studio 2005 and give that a whirl on the same machine, and perhaps develop upcoming sites with it also.I understand that upon installation of VS 2005 it will install the 2.0 Framework. Will this effect my 1.1 sites at all? Does the 2.0 Framework upgrade the 1.1 framework, or does it leave the 1.1 framework intact so older projects can still use it?Any advice would be welcome! :)Thanks,Cr...
