how to deploy

Assuming I ever get done with this project. How do I take a Visual Studio .NET 2003 project, written as an .aspx project and actually deploy it to a web server so tht it can be viewed/used?

hehe :-)

can you try making a new project by choosing file - new - new website
i'm using v2005, but it should be the same, otherwise make sure that u select website as a project
set it up to work over http on your localhost
when using visual basic as the programming language you should find "publish website" when right clicking the website in the pane on your right hand (solution explorer)

The easiest way imo, is to "publish" the website, collected the files and put them on the webserver.
Make sure for IIS you set the website to asp 2.0

Hope this helps

When I was working with Visual Studio Epxress I had a Publiash button that was pretty cool. But, going through the Menu commands I don't see the same thing on Visual Studio. I have looked but can't seem to find anything that would suggest I could publish the web site. Could you be a little more specific?

sorry about that,

when you're using you can publish by right-clicking the website and choosing publish
i don't think the publish option exist for c# but i'm not 100% sure

I've moved up dumber than a rock. It is in the solution explorer, however, it appears I don't have to do anything as I can load the .APSX page directly into the browser.
