What is the correct way to move project from website to my laptop? RRS feed

    Ok I'm going to admit defeat and post a question. I know various people have asked this in various ways but it's taking forever piecing everything together.

    Task: To download source files from website and get it up and running on my machine so I can develop it.

    General question: Have I done this right?

    a. I created a new MVC 4 blank project then used File menu > Add website to add the files that I downloaded.

    b. Then I pressed rebuild all

    Should I have editted a config file first?

    Specific question

    I'm getting the error Error  Could not load type 'MyWebsiteName.MvcApplication'.  on this bit of code:

    <%@ Application Codebehind="Global.asax.cs" Inherits="MyWebsiteName.MvcApplication" Language="C#" %>

    I'm sure it is something simple that I need to do so am looking for these tips to ensure I can deal with this and any further problems I'm likely to encounter.

    You could rename the class at this format of "NameSpace.Class, AssemblyName".

    At the same time I can test for you if you provide the link that you download.
