Dear Experts,

I am trying to publish my VB.net application.
When choose the project name then Build Deployment Package I get it built as attached but if I click on Publish only I get the error message that it's failed since project does not exist.

Please advise!

Where do you want to publish your application?
Rather than just clicking "publish" I suggest you to enter the project properties (alt+enter on your project) and select "publish" menu.
It will show you some options...

select build->publish "solutionname"

select the folder where to publish
select single dll or separate dll options to publish

I tried to pulish it from the build menu but I don't have the option to choose a dll file. It's the same as before!

Please check the attached.

Could you please check your publish destination?
I would suggest you to use FILE destination (so write the full path of your virtual directory).

select publish method as "File System"

and provide target location "c:\test\Publisheddll  -->for example (create some folder and select here)

and give publish

check it's publishing or not...if published u will have dll of all ur project files in the selected folder
