Visual Studio 2008 Website not reflecting changes

I inherited a website that acts as a Vacation request workflow.  Each year, as the company announces the holidays for the next year, the website gets changed and republished.  I've done this for a couple of years, but this year republishing doesn't reflect the changes.

I've rebuilt it with the changes, published and restarted IIS, am I missing a step?

The only difference (that I can think of) is that this year we are using Windows 7 and in previous years XP.

Is windows 7 the host server or the development enviroment?
if it is the host then  IIS versions are completely different (Windows 7 is IIS 7 whereas XP is IIS 5.1) and you will need to check that your site in configured to run in IIS 7.

The site resides in a Server 2003 environment with IIS 5.2

Our workstations use Windows 7.  I don't understand if I published the rebuilt site how it acknowledges the old dates and not the new ones?   I left the remaining dates (Christmas and New Years) and added the new holidays for 2014.

Here's the statement I changed

old:

        While startDate < endDate
            If (startDate.Date = CDate("11/27/13") OrElse startDate.Date = CDate("12/24/13") OrElse startDate.Date = CDate("12/31/13")) Then
                total += 0.5
            ElseIf Not (startDate.DayOfWeek = DayOfWeek.Sunday OrElse startDate.DayOfWeek = DayOfWeek.Saturday OrElse startDate.Date = CDate("1/1/13") OrElse startDate.Date = CDate("2/18/13") OrElse startDate.Date = CDate("5/27/13") OrElse startDate.Date = CDate("7/4/13") OrElse startDate.Date = CDate("9/2/13") OrElse startDate.Date = CDate("11/11/13") OrElse startDate.Date = CDate("11/28/13") OrElse startDate.Date = CDate("11/29/13") OrElse startDate.Date = CDate("12/25/13") OrElse startDate.Date = CDate("1/1/14")) Then
                total += 1.0
            Else
            End If
            startDate = startDate.AddDays(0.5 Or 1.0)

        End While

new:

        While startDate < endDate
            If (startDate.Date = CDate("11/26/14") OrElse startDate.Date = CDate("12/24/13") OrElse startDate.Date = CDate("12/24/14") OrElse startDate.Date = CDate("12/31/13") OrElse startDate.Date = CDate("12/31/14")) Then
                total += 0.5
            ElseIf Not (startDate.DayOfWeek = DayOfWeek.Sunday OrElse startDate.DayOfWeek = DayOfWeek.Saturday OrElse startDate.Date = CDate("1/1/14") OrElse startDate.Date = CDate("2/17/14") OrElse startDate.Date = CDate("5/26/14") OrElse startDate.Date = CDate("7/4/14") OrElse startDate.Date = CDate("9/1/14") OrElse startDate.Date = CDate("11/11/14") OrElse startDate.Date = CDate("11/27/14") OrElse startDate.Date = CDate("11/28/14") OrElse startDate.Date = CDate("12/25/13") OrElse startDate.Date = CDate("12/25/14") OrElse startDate.Date = CDate("1/1/15")) Then
                total += 1.0
            Else
            End If
            startDate = startDate.AddDays(0.5 Or 1.0)

        End While

If the site still works with the old dates, ti means that publish has not been successful in update your site. (This is nothing to do with code changeshown above, there may be issues with VS2008 dealing with older IIS versions though)

In VS, please rebuild solution and publish it again (as per instructions here. .
If it does not work, please send me the output window messages (when publishing) and any warnings when you rebuild solution.
