[Urgent] Build Problem - DLL not found

P: n/a
Hi,

I've converted my project from VS 2003 to VS 2005. But when I try to build
the web project, there are no DLL files inside the bin folder.

I've tried to create a new Class library project and build it, purely in
VS2005, and when I build this single project, the bin folder will contain
the compiled DLL files.

Is there any settings that I've missed?

Please help!!

Regards,
Janet

The compilation model in VS2005 is slightly different and no longer
compiles everything into single DLL. You can still do it the old
VS2003 way, but you need to install the Web Application Project:

Is it a web application? The web application model changed in VS2005.
It's now called a website. The DLL is generated only when you publish it.

If you want to keep the good ol' 2003 model, you can use the Web
Application Project add-on, which is described here:

Note: This add-on is also present in VS2005 if you installed VS2005 SP1
Beta.

If you use the "Publish Website" menu item, you do.

"Build", "Publish Website".

You can also right-click the project in the Solution Explorer and select "Publish Website".
