I have a solution that contains a web project and a class libary.
//web project path
c:\inetput\wwwroot\abc\webapp

//library project path
c:\inetput\wwwroot\abc\Lib

I have a reference in my web project to the class libary which contains my header and footer control.  THe web project is a virtual directory but the class library is not.

I am getting this error below. Does my library need to be outside of the wwwroot altogether for this to work? Or do they need to be in the same virutal directory/application. I was under the impression on the web project needed to actually be a virtual directory.



Server Error in '/abc/webapp' Application.

User controls must be in the same directory as the application. Copy the ascx file and code-behind file to your application's directory.

Here's a link to more information:

Good Luck,

Try making \abc the IIS application, then the entire directory structure would be an IIS app and you could then easily traverse the directory tree for your controls.

Thanks for the link. I understand now and what is going on and what to change!!



warmach, I had tried that already but the web app expected my web.config file to be in the root of 'abc\webapp'.
