Hi, I am near the end of my project and I have to start documenting my application. I have been googling all day for documentation tools and I found quite a few, but they all had problems with either VS 2005 or working with VB.Net. It seems the most recent
tool for documenting is with Sandcastle and the Sandcastle Help File Builder. I am using ghostdoc to generate my xml comments, so all I really need is a way to create any kind of document (javadoc, msdn). I dont even see the option "xml documentation file"...(i
had ndoc and sandcastle installed)
How Can I properly document a VB.Net application in VS 2005 without having to hack the client or bring weird changes to the web.config ? Which application would work in this environment ?

You are pretty much forced to generate it like you have been doing. I pretty much use GhostDoc and nDoc to document my stuff. Never did like Sandsastle.
One way to automate the process is using NAnt it has a <ndoc> task, you could also look at Visual Studio's Post Build Event to compile your docs for you

I have a few problems with Ndoc though. First of all, their website seems to not support .Net 2.0. I found a beta version but it does not seem to support VB.Net. I found NDoc2005 and have not tried it yet. Configuration seems to be a problem as there are
many steps to follow...
1. add stuff in the web.config ->
<system.codedom> etc... and all the steps on
I have Ndoc 2.0 Beta, am using VB.Net in VS 2005, but opening Ndoc asks to find a .dll. Where do I find this ?
