I am using VS2010 on a Windows 7 desktop to develop a client-server application and a Windows Server 2008 R2 server on my office LAN with IIS7 to test the server side ASP code. I have already established FTP configuration between the desktop and server
of the LAN, but when I try to "Publish Web Site" from Visual Studio I get the following error:
Error: Unable to create the Web site 'http://10.0.0.2/testWebsite'. The Web server does not appear to have FrontPage Server Extensions installed.
I understand that FPSE is being retired, but installed it on the server so that quick publishing would be enabled directly from VS2010. (Note: I did not accomplish the owsadm.exe part of the FPSE install because I could not figure out the syntax for my
particular website. This might explain my problem, I don't know.)
I am comfortable using FTP or another tool to publish the website, but I am not entirely sure which files to copy over to testing or production servers, and for this reason I would prefer that Visual Studio decides which components to deploy.
The website tests fine from Visual Studio when executed from the desktop's localhost instance of IIS, but I have not been able to access it from the server via http from a remote client over the LAN.
Can anyone provide guidance in using owsadm.exe to extend FPSE to my test website, or an alternate technology for ASP.Net test publishing and deployment? Thanks...

To deploy a web site project, please refer to these links below:
# Deploy a Web Site Project by Using the Publish Web Site Tool
# How To Create a Website From Visual Studio 2010 and Publish
About that error, please refer to:
# Server and Client Configuration Issues in ClickOnce Deployments
# The web server does not appear to have FrontPage Server Extensions installed
On the other hand, the Visual Studio will deploy the necessary files when publish the website in the VS.

You cant use FrontPage on WIndows Server 2008 R2 as Microsoft doesnt release FrontPage on Windows Server 2008 and above. I see that you use FTP tools to upload your files, yes this is an alternative way to upload your files

Thank you for the references. I still could not get FP extensions to work so I am using WSFTP.
