publish/deploy vs 2008 separate assemblies

publish/deploy vs 2008 separate assemblies

I am trying to find out how to publish my service (or website) from VS 2008 as separate dlls and some xslt files.

I have an old project that I am working on and it uses 2008. I thought you could do this.
It has a deployment project that specifies all the referenced assemplies and the couple extra files it needs but it create an install or setup file.

I don't want that. I want it to move the files from the bin folder to the publish folder.

Can this be done?



RE: publish/deploy vs 2008 separate assemblies

I have seen this before but it just tells you how to publish. Will create some files with an extension of .deploy and a setup.exe.

What I want, and I know it can be done in later versions, is not create this one set up file, but, in essence, move the .exes and .dlls and any dependencies (which are in the bin folder) to the publish folder. The Deployment project also allows me to add other files, such as xml and xslt files.

I can then just copy all the files (minus the config files) and paste them into the service folder or web folder on the client. I don't want to run a "Setup.exe" to accomplish this.

This is the way I do it in my 2010 projects on up.
