asked on

What generates _vti_pvt and how do I get rid of it?

I've got a Visual Studio 2008 solution with 4 projects in it. I publish all of them using VS2008's publish feature. VS complains consistently about one of the projects that it cannot remove the _vti_pvt folder and I have to go delete the folder and republish. None of the other web folders have a _vti_pvt folder and I don't use FrontPage.

What causes VS to generate this folder and more importantly, how do I dispense with it?

Thanks much!

I've looked and neither FrontPage nor FrontPage extensions are installed on this server.
Hi where did you look?

if you right click on a web site inthew IIS manager, user 'all tasks' is the a 'server extensions' option?

Cheers.
I'm running IIS 6 on 2003 R2 and no, there is no server extensions option.

Visual Studio also explicitly says that it is publishing the _vti_pvt folder in the output window when I publish the project. Also all the other 3 projects are being published to the same website.

Thanks for keeping on this...
OK, then you probably have some frontpage support on the VS pc.

If you have IIS running on the local PC too, check the 'server extensions' tab under IIS for the local web site.

Cheers.
Sorry, I guess I guess I didn't say this before but I am developing on this same 2003 server. This is my dev server.
So VS is also installed on the server?

Cheers.
Yep it is.
