I installed Visual Studio Professional 2012 RC Version 11.0.50522.1 RCREL
Then I loaded and compiled my solution, built earlier with VS11 Express Beta For Web.
Everything was great, until I tried to deploy...
In Solution Explorer, I right click on my solution root item and found that
That link leads to the Windows Azure Tools pack June 2012, which is not of my interest.
Furthermore, in my project properties, items "Publishing/Creation Web Package" and "Publishing/Creation SQL Package" (after "Web" and before "Silverlight Application") are missing. I can notice the difference if I compare menus with Visual Studio Professional
At the end of the story... I cannot deploy my ASP.NET solution, neither locally, nor to a remote server.
this thread, but didn't help me, because I didn't find any discordance between solution and project configurations.
What's the issue?
Help me... I'm stuck.

The web publish tools are now an optional part of the VS installation, but they should have been included by default. To add them back, the correct link is
This will say it's the Azure SDK, but the web publish tools are included, and they aren't bundled separately from the Azure SDK.

ItalianCousin, how did you get into this state? Did you uninstall any Visual Studio Web items? As Tom stated you can grab the extension in the Azure SDK link.

Windows Azure SDK for .NET (VS 2012 RC) - June 2012 already installed.
But still in the NOPUBLISHALLOWED state.
All menu items are missing or grayed.

In order to get here, I didn't do anything strange. Just installed VS2012RC and started using it.
I don't need Azure! I just want to compile source code and get binaries and cshtml files in a local folder to perform a fast upload to my service provider.

A little more information:
went to Control Panel => Programs => Application and Features, found VS Pro 2012 RC and click Change in order to fix my installation.
I was given a list of optional feature to install, where Visual Studio LightSwitch and
Web Developer Tools (MVC, Web Pages, IIS Express 8, Web Deploy v3, Web Tools Extensions, Web Platform Installer 4, Page Inspector) were not checked.
I checked those items and applied the change. After a configuration session, I reopened VS2012RC and found that...
...nothing had changed.
Still Visual Studio LightSwitch and Web Developer Tools unchecked.
A part from VS2012RC, this PC holds VS2012Pro full and VS2011 Web Dev Express. Is that a kind of application conflict?
I don't know...

I finally solved.
I uninstalled Visual Studio 2011 Beta Express for Web and made a lot of repair/modify/fix installation processes with a pair of re-boot.
Now I have deployment feature active.
Can you see teardrops from my eyes?
Thanks to everybody.
