It has been a while I have used VS2005 and haven't touched VS2003. Now I have to inherit an ASP.NET 1.1 project built in VS2003. What I have now is VS2003 installed and a folder containing all the project files on my hard drive. What can I do to quickly
create a web project from those pieces and run?
Do I need to do exactly what the previous person did to start? Please advise details to get me going. Thanks.

Based on my understanding, you want to create a new web project based on the existing files in a folder. The development tool is Visual Studio 2003. If I have any misunderstanding, please let me know.
In my opinion, there are three ways to go:
1. If the solution file (.sln) exists, please create a virtual directory for current project, the web address should be same as the one defined in the solution file. (You can view the solution file by notepad). Or you can create a new solution file based
on the existing project file. This method is covered in step 2.
2. If there is no solution file but project file exists, please create a new blank solution project and add the existing project. You can check my reply in the following thread for more detailed information.
How to re-create a lost Solution file?
3. If neither solution file nor project file exists, please create a new web project and then add the files from that folder. For example:
a) Create a new web project.
b) Add all the files into current project (Right click the project in Solution Explorer and then select
Add | Add Existing Item...) and overwrite the existing files (created by default).

After the 3 steps are done, what should I do about compilation and deployment to production? Are there different ways to do all that? Thanks.
