How can change a Web Site Project back to a Web Application Project?
Posted on 2008-06-11
I had a VS 2003 web application project solution that was converted to VS 2005 web Application.
After the conversion the application works without any issues locally (the machine on which the conversion was carried out).
All Changes were subsequently checked into visual SourceSafe.
When other developers got the upgraded project from source control.
The web application was working correctly.
Recently one of the Developers got the latest version of the whole solution.
After this the Web Application is now being recognised as Web Site Project and all source Safe links are broken.
Rebinding the SourceSafe does not seem to be resolving the problem completly, although this partly fixes the binding issues.
The project includes all the historic files from sourcesafe that are no longer part of the solution and leaves the solution appearing as web site project.
Is it possible to change the project back to being a web application?
