Based on my understanding, the issue is that you cannot open a solution by Visual Studio 2005 for it has been upgraded to VS.NET 2008 type. Since you want to generate the output by Web Development Project, you wonder if there is a command tool to do that.
If I have misunderstood your concern, please let me know.
For the command tool of this issue, please refer to the following link for using “aspnet_merge.exe”.

Alternatively, you can use WDP for Visual Studio 2008 which is available now.

However, if you still want to use Visual Studio 2005 as your development tool, you can create a new solution/project by Visual Studio 2005, and then add the source files back by “Add Existing Item…”. Build the website and fix all the errors (Visual Studio
2008 may add some namespace in souce file and configurations in web.config). At last, re-create a Web Deployment Project based on the recovered web project.

Install Visual Studio 2008 Web Deployment Projects then from the command line use msbuild.exe.

You will need to install the December CTP WDP 2008 for wdp projects to work on VS2008. Since your project already had a WDP in VS2005, you will need to upgrade that .wdproj file to be usable in VS2008 or create a new WDP in 2008 for your migrated website. A
WDP2005 project will not work in VS2008. The link below should give you more info.
To build a WDP project from command line, you can use MSBuild.exe and pass it the solution file of your project.
