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.

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:

error ASPPARSE: Could not load type 'MyWebApp.Page1'.
Done building project "MyWebApp.vbproj_deploy.wdproj" -- FAILED.

I have searched on this and found some information, but it doesn't seem to help.  I've looked at the wdproj file and found the line:

...\..\Visual Studio Projects\MyWebApp

Everything seems right, but there is obviously a problem.

Any ideas?

Did you try UN-checking the option "Allow precompiled site to be updatable" in the Property Page of the Web Deployment Project?

Yup....just did it again to check.  Still have the same problem that it can't find the code behind class.  Obviously its not finding the DLL.

Any other thoughts anyone?

Could you provide the actual exact detailed steps so that anyone with VS2008 can follow your steps from scratch and reproduce the error? This might help spot if you missed something in your set up.

Create a Web Application, and add a couple subdirectories with pages in them.  You don't need much and make sure it is building correctly.  

Add a Web Deployment Project and try to rebuild.  I usually fail on the pages located in the first subdirectory.  It simply cannot find the DLL.

Hopefully someone else might have some insight based on the information you provided so far.

Here is what I tried based on what I understood of your description, and I get no errors. If you could provide similar steps based on what you tried, it might help spot if you missed something.

1. Start VS2008.

2. File -> New -> Project -> ASP.NET Web Application. Choose ".NET Framework 2.0". Name: WebApplication5. Location e:\bugs. UN-checked "create directory for solution."

3. In solution explorer, right click on the web application and select Add -> "New Folder".

4. Right click on "NewFolder1", and select Add -> New Item.

5. Choose "Web Form". Click ok.

6. Right click on the project, choose "Add Web Deployment Project".

Name: WebApplication5.csproj_deploy

Location: e:\bugs\WebApplication5.csproj_deploy

7. Right click on the web deployment project, select "Build".

No errors.

If you view the "Build" output window, it says the following at the end:

========== Build: 2 succeeded or up-to-date, 0 failed, 0 skipped ==========

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?

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...

Web Deployment Project and Web Application Project
 Hi! 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: C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\aspnet_compiler.exe -v /WebDepWeb.csproj -p <MySourceFolder>\WebDepWeb -f <MySourceFolder>\WebDepBuild\Binaries\Release\_PublishedWebsi...

Web Application Projects with Web Deployment Projects...
Hi there,  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 Projects & Web Deployment Projects
What is the difference between both? I can't find the answer! thanks Hi, 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. http://webproject.scottgu.com Whereas a Web Deployment Project(WDP) is used to deploy a web project and provides flexiblity while deployment.

Web Deployment Project & Web Application Project
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) Daniel Brüntesonhttp://www.numlock.se Hi Daniel, Do you have the lastest version of Web Application Projects?  I have the February release installed (http://msdn.microsoft.com/asp.net/reference/i...

Problem when deploying Web Application project over VS2005 Web Site project
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...

Web Deployment Project outputs too many files from Web Application Project
Hi everyone, 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...
