Upgrade to Vs 2008 does not work


L

Ok I copied a VS 2005 web site to another folder.

Open my new VS 2008. Attempt to run.

I get the following:

Error 1 It is an error to use a section registered as
allowDefinition='MachineToApplication' beyond application level. This error
can be caused by a virtual directory not being configured as an application
in IIS. C:\Visual Studio Projects\Music Player Web Site\MusicSite\Web.config
21


The error points to :

<sessionState timeout="60">
</sessionState>

This is not a virtual directory. I have one but it is attached to IIS7.0
and is used when I publish.

Any ideas??

Thanks

management console..

I created a new folder (file system). I copied the contents of my VS 2005
web site (file system) to the new folder. At this point I cannot see what
relationship this has to IIS. If I "Publish" the site then I would use the
virtual folder which is configure as an application.

Until I get a working version in VS 2008 I see no relationship between my
(file system) web site and ISS.

If so what do I get rid of or change or ....????

Are you saying that you using Filesystem type of project for your ASP.NET
application?
Cause the error points that you are using IIS. And with IIS virtual (or not
virtual) folder must be configured as an application if you planning to have
web.config there...

Yes I am using filesystem not IIS. The project (2005) is filesystem but has
a publish which sends it to IIS.

Ok now it seems that somehow I managed to convince VS 2008 that my folder
structure required that the top level folder was the solution. Now the
original solution contained the web site and a project with the DAL. Simply
creating a new folder with the web site folder and the DAL folder did not
work and all the references were totally out of wack.

What I had to do was delete all this so that VS 2008 told me it could not
find it and then recopy the two folders under a general folder I have
created for VS projects.

I could then open the web site and add an existing project (DAL). This
brings things back to "normal"
