Been developing with c# for quite a bit now but can't believe I can't figure this one!
When I develop a new c# asp.net website, Visual Studio .Net creates me a nice new virtual directory on the server and all files I add are autoamtically addeded to th project
Now I downloaded an open source asp.net application (zip file), it comes with everything
So great, I unzipped it to my local hard drive and tried to open the SLN (solution file),.,, but everytime i do it says (between the ----------)
"The default web access mode for this project is set to file share, but the project folder at http://localhost/ndcms
cannot be opened with the path "c:\inetpub\wwwroot\ndCMSD
"Unable to open web project"
Retry using a different file share path
Try to open the project with frontpage server extension
I sort of understand this, yes it can't find the source files etc on my local IIS. My question is what is the best way to copy local files into the IIS, just copy them into the directory on IIS and the create a virtual directory? But will that mean the .SLN file is now invalid??
Where is the path name "c:\inetpub\wwwroot\ndCMSD
I know its pretty normal to have IIS on localhost, BUT i have a seperate server named server1 which is local to my LAN.
To cut a long story short, i am looking for the best way to convert the files extracted from the ZIP into my IIS file.
I thought there would be an import or similar??
