Move the App_Code directory

    I am new to .net and am stumped as to how to use "include" files in my
    asp application.

    Currently I have created classes in the app_code directory that are
    shared between various aspx pages and this works fine. The problem,
    however, is - I am trying to include aspx functionality as part of a
    pre-existing classic asp 3.0 website. I.e., in iis I have old website
    as normal - within this application their is a folder which contains
    the new .net2 part of the program. Again, this works fine but the
    problem is when the server looks for code in the app_code directory it
    is looking in the root of the website rather than my specified aspx
    directory. Is their any way of specifying where the app_config folder
    is read from? Otherwise it makes deployment and testing a real pain.
    I know that at some point I will probably need to compile the site and
    this may remove these problems? But in the meantime could anyone shed
    any light on this issue. Any help or pointers in the right direction
    would be appreciated.

    Many thanks in advance for any response.

    ....I figured it out in the end. By creating a virtual directory in iis
    that contained the pages when called from classic asp the
    virtual directory acts as a root for the .net application and hence the
    problem is now solved. App_data is found from the virtual directory
    NOT the root of the directory and hence the files can now be seen.
    Hope this helps someone else.
