Deploying directory of files in VS 2005?


T

Tom

I was wondering if there is a way to deploy a set of files (.asp files
for the CE web page) from Visual Studio 2005? There are basicly 60
..asp files that I would like to deploy to the \windows\www\wwwpub
directory on the device. I tried to create a project with the files in
it and a dummy exe, but only the exe deployed to the device (duh...).
Does anyone know of a way to do this, or for that matter, to deploy
config files, etc. to separate directories on a device?

Hi Tom,

We can deploy all your files with 'Remote File Viewer' that comes with
the Visual Studio, rite ??

You could copy over the files like that, but I was looking for
something that would work while deploying.

I don't think that anything comes with to deploy a directory structure. You
could create an installation project to install your application with a
bunch of other files in a suitable directory structure, I guess.

I actually figured out something that helps a lot. IF you add the
files (.htm, .asp, config files) including the directory structure to
your project, you can select all the files and under the properties,
there is a "Copy to Output Directory" which, if set, will copy them.
