I was working with a .net project and had not updated the web.config myself.  I never really concerend myself with it at all.  I am only using this for development purposes.  I had to rebuild my machine, got a fresh copy of the project then started getting errors trying to run my project.  I am not sure how to remake my web.config from scratch and what is needed in it.  I have no connection strings.

Error      1      Copying file Web.config to obj\Debug\TransformWebConfig\original\Web.config failed. Could not find file 'Web.config'.            0      0      Proj.Web

If you didnt change it then you can create a dummy project, grab the freshly generated web.config and add to your existing project. Just make sure the version of ASP.NET etc match and that should give you a good start.
