Visual Studio .NET - visual studio 2003 & 2005 compatability

Asked By ruth kanmalar on 12-Sep-06 06:02 AM


 I have a web application in visual studio 2003. The bin had some dll files in visual studio 2003. but if i open the same project in visual studio 2005 there were no dll files in bin? Where can i find them on 2005?

Extract from Scott's blog


One of the biggest changes was that we’ve moved away from compiling everything in a web project into a single DLL (which is the only mode that VS 2002 and VS 2003 support).  Instead, we now partition the web project into multiple more granular assemblies

2) Best techniques for building a single web-site that is partitioned up into multiple nested/isolated vdirs and applications with VS 2005

3) Best techniques for using MSBuild and builder helper projects with web projects in VS 2005.

4) Best techniques for upgrading from VS 2003 to VS 2005 and what project system considerations you should keep in mind.
