On a web form 2010 vb.net application, I did a rebuild of the web form application and this change was placed on a test report server and ran successfully.
However when I did a website publish of the files that can be exported to a flash drive or a app server, the application did not find a dll. The application could not run. It could not find a dll.
Thus basically what is the difference between the 2 versions of the deployment methods? Do you have any suggestions on what I could do to make the website publish work?

did you made any changes when you rebuild the application?
did you rebuild the application using upgraded version of visual studio like VS 2015 or VS 2017?
can you inform us about the steps you taken to publish the site, it will help us to narrow down the issue.
are you talking about any specific dll file or is it a external DLL file? that you are using with your project?
please try to provide above information. we will try to provide further suggestions to solve the issue.

The following is in response to your questions;
1.Yes I made some minor changes in the application for a rebuild. All the changes are in one vb.net 2010 file.
2.This application is currently using Visual Studio 2010. I plan to upgrade the visual studio version in my next release of the application
3.id the publish, right clicked on D...\AttendanceLetters\.
4. Next step, I clicked on Publish website.
5. next step I placed the output on a flash drive and the other time I placed the output on a file share location.
6. I then gave the person who installs the file a flash drive one time and a location where the files are located at.
7. I did not change the dll. There is a group of DLLs that are missing in the web config file.
**Note the following:
a. Test app server is 2008 and Prod app server is 2012. Could that make a difference?
b. The application changes run on a test app server when I did a rebuild. Could the person who installs the application use the output from the test and server and place it on the production server?
c, If you need any images, can you tell me how to place them on a response that I give to you?

I find in some old thread that if you are missing any library references in your project then this kind of issue can be occur after publishing the project.
so you can find for any missing library references and add it.
for example any nugget package
it may help you to solve your issue.
