I am trying to publish an ASP.Net application. I am using VS 2005.
Whenever I try to do this, Visual Studio starts firing off instance after instance of the ASP.Net Development Server (filling up the taskbar), and shows
http://localhost:2969/asp.netwebadminfiles (The port keeps changing). The publish process takes an extremely long time (15 minutes and still not complete).
I am publishing to another directory on my local machine. I have also tried publishing to a network share directory. My colleagues can open the same VS solution and publish with no issues, and it takes less than a minute.
I have never seen this happen before, and see no reason the ASP.Net Development server should be required, as I'm not trying to run the project, just publish. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Try creating a new default ASP.NET web site and then try publishing it. This will tell you whether the issue is specific to your solution or not.

Go to Project Properties, Web tab, and select the Use IIS radio button. See the screenshot at the end of this article:
