  • Visual Studio 2010 Web Deployment Projects Beta - Available Now

    If you’ve been using Web Deployment Projects in Visual Studio 2008 or 2005, you can upgrade to VS 2010 without hesitation now with the availability of Visual Studio 2010 Web Deployment Projects Beta. The power tool named “Web Deployment Projects” originally shipped as an out-of-band update for both Visual Studio 2005 and 2008 . This power tool provided a simplistic way to replace config sections and to integrate the ASP.NET pre-compiler and merge utilities into Visual Studio’s build process. Although Visual Studio 2010 includes a powerful new packaging and deployment technology based on MSDeploy, it is not backward compatible with the previous releases of Web Deployment Projects. To address this incompatibility we’ve ported the original Web...


  • Server specific Web.config sections replacement with WDP

    In this post I am hoping to explain how you can change your web.config settings per different server environment using Web Deployment Projects (WDP) for VS 2005 or VS 2008… First of all let me start with the fact that WDP for VS 2005 as well as WDP for VS 2008 are build configuration aware… In fact, special effort was made in WDP 2005 & WDP 2008 to allow configuration specific settings… That is the reason when you look at the WDP UI you can see configuration specific dropdowns as shown below: You can create one build configuration per your server environment eg. “Testing”, “Staging” , “Production” etc and configure all of your WDP settings per build configuration pretty easily… Learn more how to manage configurations per build environment...


  • Web Application Project Vs Web Site

    Few days back I summarized the difference between a project system and a project templates ; today I want to focus on key differences between different project systems available for web developers in Visual Studio… You might be aware of the fact that we have two different types of project systems for Web developers i.e Web Application Projects (WAPs) and Web Site Projects (WSPs)…  Often time I get asked this question on which type of project should to use for web development…  Sometimes web developers even start a religious war on the two choices, honestly here you have an option to choose the god of your own choice and this post is my attempt to help you make an informed decision… Most of the time I land up asking questions to people...


  • Web Deployment Projects do not work after installing VS 2008 SDK

    Some days back it was brought to our attention that Web Deployment Projects (WDP) stop working after installing Visual Studio 2008 SDK…  As you soon VS 2008 SDK is uninstalled then WDP again start working… We narrowed down this issue to be due to “Isolated Shell Application” which come as part of VS 2008 SDK…  The work around to get WDP working again is to go ahead remove the Shell package by deleting the registry key below: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\9.0\Packages\{815946b0-1c0d-4eab-8226-36ea3c59162a} If you would at anytime restore the Shell package functionality then it would be advisable to Export the registry key and save it somewhere (or repairing the VS 2008 SDK install should also do the same)… If you have any concerns...


  • Exclude Files and Folders from WDP Output

    Web  Deployment Projects (WDP) allows you to pre-compile your web into binaries and further also allows you to merge the assemblies produced in the format that you like. In my earlier posts I had talked about various WDP features and the latest release of WDP for VS 2008.  You can read more about this here By default in the WDP output you will find project files (.csproj/.vbproj), user files (.user), .PDB, obj folders and other artifacts which are not required for web to run.  It is pretty easy to get rid of these files automatically by following these simple steps: Step 1 - Open WDP project file for editing Open WDP project file by right clicking on the WDP project and clicking "Open Project File" Step 2 - Exclude Read...
