Publish web site from Expression Web 4 and Visual Studio 2010 to IIS7

Till now I was using EW2 and VS2005 with IIS6 and Windows Server 2003 (framework 2 sites), and I was publishing my sites to IIS via Front Page Server Extensions 2002. Now I use VS 2010 and EW4 (framework 4) and IIS7 on Windows Server 2008. As we all know FPSE 2002 are not supported by Win 2008, but I try to install some extensions that I found on internet (some beta, complicated installation, not working at all for me version) and it did not help so I decided to change the way I publish sites to my new IIS and have question for you people: What method should I use (ftp, web DAV, or something else), how to set it up and configure so I can work from VS and EW?

Thanks.

FP Extensions here:
http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/134/installing-the-frontpage-server-extensions-on-iis-70/
You can securely use WebDAV for publishing, Expression Web 4 supports this and it works great once configured!

For VS 2010 you can map a drive to you WebDAV directories and then publish like that!

Thanks, I also find those link, try to install FPSE on Win Server 2008 R2, but with no luck. Then I decided to use webDAV, and now I can publish my sites again.
