I've busted this question into three parts. This is part three.
Over the last few months, I've dragged and dropped some chart controls and some other ASP standard and data controls onto some web forms in my project. Subsequently, some assembly references have appeared in my project Web.config file.
- Figure 1 shows the project's current assembly references in Web.config.
- Figure 2 shows the project's current assembly references in the manifest.
- Figure 3 shows the project's assembly references in Web.config that I've been able to include. If I include assembly references 2, 3, 4, or 5 shown in figure 1, most (if not all) of my web forms on the production server break.
- One more piece if interesting information: If I delete all
assembly references from Web.config on the development server, I can still build the project successfully.
Is the best protocol to leave the assembly references in the development copy of Web.config and to delete them all from the production copy of Web.config. Or, should I try to include them in the production copy of Web.config. If I include them, what steps do I need to take to keep the production website from breaking?
