I followed ScottGu's blog on using "Web Deployment Projects" to deploy my web application from this URL:
I followed the instructions and everything worked fine.
- The Web application builds
- The web deployment project precompiled the web application
- The Web Setup project created the MSI file for installation on the server
Now though I cannot make any changes to my Web Application because I keep getting the following error when I hit "Build Website":
"This application is already precompiled"
And the most obvious was making sure in the "web Deployment project" that I checked the box to allow the web site to be upgradeable after precompiling, but it doesn't make a difference.
Can someone please help me so that I can update my site?

I was experiencing the same problem and was able to get working again by deleting that PrecompiledApp.config file. It also stuffed up a lot of my references and the removed all the CodeFile="..." attributes.
What I still don't understand is how my Web Deployment project decided to deploy the precompiled code over all the files in the normal source directory. Luckily this was a very small part of a larger solution (and I had a proper version in source control
to draw on); otherwise this would have been extremely frustrating. I'm a big fan of Web Deployment Projects, however this sort of flakiness is a bit worrying.
