Porting over an ASP.NET application

P: n/a
I written an ASP .NET application on a development server. I now want to
move it over to production. In the application folder on the dev box, I
see a whole bunch of files - *.vb. *.aspx, *.resx, *.vbproj, *.webinfo,
*.config etc..

Which files do I need to copy over to the production server? Is there a
"publish" feature in VS .Net that does this?

Under the Project menu there is a Copy Files command that can be used to
copy only the necessary files for the site.

For the most part, all files except the code files are needed for the site.
The includes aspx, asax, ascx, dll, and probably more.

Does that ever work though?
It's never done anything except spit out "Unspecified Error" for me.

Has always worked for me, although I have front page extensions installed.
I don't know what would happen without the extensions installed on the
server.

Ah. It says you dont need them and it can be done either way. I've never
been able to get it to work yet but I'm trying, still. Till then it's the
old batch file method.
