Question about the asp.net 2.0 web configuration tool outside ofdevelopment

I read in an older article from MSDN November 2005:

"With the release of Microsoft Visual Studio 2005, there is no "out of
the box" solution for maintaining the Membership and Role databases in
Microsoft IIS. This is a problem when you move your application from
development to a production IIS server. The utility that Microsoft
provides, ASP.NET Web Configuration, can be run only in a development,
non-production environment."


Is this still true today? Is it still the practice to create custom
ways to accomplish this? Also, why would Microsoft have only created
a tool for use on the development machine with no way to manage the
system in production? Just wondering the thought here and if I'm
correct the alternative is to manually edit things with the sql server
(or your database tool) management studio.

Thank you for comments.

I guess you are talking about "Asp.net Configuration tool"...
IIS 7 suppose to have built in support for managing role and
Best of luck

Hello, I am trying to use vs.net 2005 to migrate a project originally in vs.net 2003. I started with creation of a "web site", and then created folders for each component of the site. I read somewhere that each folder under the "web site" is compiled in separate assembly. I however, did not find that the "web site" creation in vs.net 2005 created any AssemblyInfo.cs file.

I am having a little issue with VS 2005. I am trying to use the ASP.NET configuration manager and have not had any success launching the application.

I had Visual Web Developer Express 2005 and Visual Studio 2005 installed on my computer. Realizing that I did not need Visual Web Developer Express 2005 since I had VS 2005 I removed it. My question could this be a possible reason that the ASP.NET configuration tool is not working in VS 2005 when I am doing web development? What happens is upon execution it just brings me back into the same VS design page from where I executed.

I have started to use the new Enterprise Library (Jan 06) and have set up a skeleton project using the DAAB. This all seems to work fine apart from when I come to secure the app.config file via encryption. I have encrypted the connectionsettings block in the config file but obviously when I come to deploy the solution to other PC's, it cannot read the block as it doesn't have the keys to decrypt. I understand that as far as ASP.NET...
