Can someone tell me how to deploy to a remote host ? I'm currently not using a domain, but just the IP.. for a dev server where I want to try these controls.. Especially the tab and the tree view.. Seems like a lot of work to get them to working.. ?

It really isn't a lot of work. You basically have to create a folder under the IIS root and transfer the applicable folders/files into it. Details follow:
For the sake of discussion let us assume your remote IP address is on your intranet at
192.168.0.10 and you have the applicable rights to create a folder on it.
You'll want to create the directory \\192.168.0.10\webctrl_client\1_0
To run your demo be sure to create a bin folder under the samples
folder and place the Microsoft.Web.UI.WebControls.dll (created during build.bat) into it.
You can then FTP the samples folder to \\192.168.0.10\samples and run the application.

For some reason I can't get the Build.bat file to run correctly. See my other post.. It basically gives me an error sayign that the CSE.exe file isn't a batch file, or internal or external file when I try to run it.. I even deleted the original c:\program
files\IE Web Controls directory and tried again, but to no avail.. The copying of the Runtime stuff all worked.. The build actually worked except for the DLL file which it didn't create.. weird.. Any help would be appreciated.. In the mean time, I'm studying
for my MCAD certifcation and going to use the book I bought to try some examples..
Thanks so much. I really appreciate it.. Liked your home page by the way.. The virtual tours are cool with the housing company you wrote for!

Your not alone - we've all been there - done that :)
The following new post provides a replacement batch file that should simplify the process
Thank you for the kind words on my Virtual Tours (they've been fun).

[aspTim] I'm studying for my MCAD certifcation and going to use the book I bought to try some examples
I would strongly recommend the MeasureUp test - it has aided immeasurably in attaining my MCAD; its great because it not only tells you why the answer is right - but also why the others are wrong. I recently took their online course for the 70-300 (MCSD)
and failed the test by two questions; if you saw the test you wouldn't think this was so bad. I try again in two weeks (work'n study - work'n study....)

I'll check out Measure up's practice tests. I currently have a book by que which comes with some practicing test by Prep Logic, but I've read that it's not the best, but helps..
Anyway, can you tell me where and how to use the new build file? Do I just copy it and save it as the new Build.bat and run it from the DOS Prompt or do I need to use it in Visual Studio? If so, how do you open a command prompt in VS and run the build.bat
file may I ask? Sorry for the dumb questions, but I'm just getting started really.. In the mean time I'm going to try and run the build.bat from the command prompt.. If that doesn't work, I'll await your instructions and move on to something more worthy of
Thanks so much

[Tim] Do I just copy it and save it as the new Build.bat and run it from the DOS Prompt or do I need to use it in Visual Studio?
Run from DOS after validating the applicable paths
[Tim] If so, how do you open a command prompt in VS and run the build.bat file may I ask?
| Start | All Programs | Microsoft Visual Studio .Net 2003 | Visual Studio .Net tools | VS Command Prompt
Hope this helps :)

Hi Bill, I received the error that this had to be run from inside MS Studio. I can of course get to the command prompt in VS Studio, but I don't know the command to get it to run.. I'll try again.. Sorry to bother ya so much..

The first thing you want to do is CD (Change Directory) to the location of your build.bat.
For example - if your build.bat was in C:\DotNet\Apps\Community at the command prompt you would type:
If you are not on the drive your build.bat is on, e.g., D:\DotNet\Apps\Community you would do the following:
If you are using the modified Build.bat be sure to remove the line with the "call" statement on it.
Please let me know if you need more help - we'll get you there :)
