Can any one explain how to compile and publish any site with VS2008 Standard Ed. and what type of file do I get after compiled?
I am a Visual Studio 6.0 trying to get my feet wet on ASP.NET and get rid off ASP Classic but since to be that no-one can help neither MS-Support
I spent hours over the phone with MS-Support and no result I get a little from here and there but quite
Did I make a mistake trying to move on and retire what I know best for some new technology that just gives you aggraviations and frustruation.
I thought I could get my coding at least 75% hidden from other with VS2008 but is not the case, due to the problem I've been having compiling and
publishing my app I end up putting the visible source (.cs or .vb) on the hosting provider I understand that we can run but fully hide due to the reverse engineer but at least I would like to try it and test from compiled code.
Please forgive the long post but I am so frustrated that I think I will continue with my old VS 6.0 - ASP Classic and COM-Objects for IIS.

You should be able to right click on your project and select PUBLISH which will push a compiled version of your app to the server, via ftp, or FrontPage extensions. This will leave your code in a state that cannot be opened by VS to be reverse engineered.

why not use ftp

Kyle, you'd want to use publish even if the connection method was FTP so you're not uploading the files in an editable form for security reasons. Publishing compiles the application into a dll which cannot be reverse engineered if somone gets access to

You can also compile via the command line and use FTP to transfer the app. Or just compile proprietary code and leave the rest for ease of maintenance.

Just Select your web project and goto the Build menu in Visual Studio and click on the publish website
Than it will ask your target location just select your desired target location.
There are now 3 options available to you by default the checked option is allow this precompiled site to be updatable.It means that you can anytime change and update
your markup but you cannot change the logic or business logic,simply it means you cannot modify your .cs or .vb files as they will be compiled to .dll files inside the bin folder.
Using another option called fixed naming and single page assemblies you will have separate .dll files for your every .cs or .vb files not single .dll files
You can publish to your local disk and then also transfer to your host using ftp or you can directly do this while publishing
