How to create Web Setup Project without coding source files

P: n/a
I like the feature of "Publish Web Site", because it can deploy a compiled
version of my web solution. But currently I need to deploy Crystal report
onto IIS with only .Net 2.0, so I'm trying to create a web setup project to
include crystal report merge assemblies files.

The problem I'm having now is Web Setup Project (.msi) will include all
source code files, how can I create such project with all source files
compiled like "Publish Web Site" function (ie. no .vb files)?

Make sure you look into the VS 2005 Web Application Project add-on. It makes
VS 2005 work more like VS 2003:

You should be able to add your Crystal stuff to the project and push it all
out together.

Let us know?

oop! sorry about that, once I installed your referred download "Add-on" and
restart my VS 2005, the ASP.Net Web Application appears now!

Just one little more question, is it possible to use Publish project feature
to deploy crystal report, instead of building it as package?

Thanks for your help!
