ASP.NET 2.0 web application linked to Live webserver

I had to make changes to a project build using Visual Studio 2003. It was hosted on a Live webserver from where I copied it. I pasted it on my local machine on the same network. I had to put in under C:\inetpub\wwwroot\myproject to get it to open. I checked the path on the references and they pointed to the Live webserver \\Livewebserver\wwwroot$\myproject. I ignored it.

When I compiled the project on my machine, the dlls got updated in the \bin on Live webserver. The dlls on my machine at C:\inetpub\wwwroot\myproject\bin remained the same. Gladly I did not make any change!

What is happening here? I don't want the Live dlls to effect when I compile on my local machine. How can I create version independent of Live webserver to use for development purpose. Please advise.

You might want to open the .sln file for the solution and change the paths to all point to your local copy / version.

You should be able to open the sln file in notepad.

I would recommend that you refer to this article:

No need to edit the file in a notepad.

I opened .sln in notepad. Below is how it looks. Should I change 'LiveWebserver' in "http://LiveWebserver:/myproject/myProject.vbproj" to 'localhost'?

I want to make sure it would not change on the Live server. Please advise.

Microsoft Visual Studio Solution File, Format Version 8.00
Project("{F184B08F-C81C-45F6-A57F-5ABD9991F28F}") = "myProject", "http://LiveWebserver:/myproject/myProject.vbproj", "{CFC17A85-D26E-4270-8B72-4473827B07B7}"
      ProjectSection(ProjectDependencies) = postProject
      EndProjectSection
EndProject
Global
      GlobalSection(SolutionConfiguration) = preSolution
            Debug = Debug
