Duplicating a project
Ok, I open Visual Studio .NET 2003. New C# ASP.NET Web Service project.
Everything works fine. When I'm done I close Visual Studio, go to the web
server home directory and make a copy of the folder of the existing project
to other one named different because I want to make some changes without
affecting the initial project. But what's my surprise that when I try to
open the copied project all of errors appear. Why Microsoft didn't make
asp.net projects independent of their location like you can do with html,
asp or php pages?
Trying to solve the problems...
First I go to xxxx.csproj.webinfo and change the url to the new path. OK
Then I set the .asmx file to the start page OK
But now... visual studio says the project is not configured to be
debugged... and in the project options debugging is enabled as well as in
Anyway, I build the project OK
Now I open it in the explorer and this error appear:
Parser Error Message: It is an error to use a section registered as
allowDefinition='MachineToApplication' beyond application level. This error
can be caused by a virtual directory not being configured as an application
Line 43: by Microsoft that offers a single logon and core profile
services for member sites.
Line 44: -->
Line 45: <authentication mode="Windows" />
Line 47: <!-- AUTHORIZATION
In the IIS manager I see that both the initial folder and the copied one
have different properties but I cannot change them. They have different
icons either (the copied is a common folder).
is there an easier way to duplicate a project?
Re: Duplicating a project
Go to IIS Manager, right-click on the new folder and select Properties from
the context menu.
In the properties dialog, Home Directory tab click the "create" button. This
will convert your Virtual Directory into an Application. Then you will be
able to call the web service.
On a side note, you could use a tool like Visual Source Safe to efficiently
manage different versions of the same applications.
