  • User-870950844 posted


    I want to deploy my web application in a production web server.

    I do not want to use VS 2013 in the production machine

    I do not want to use the Nuget Package from VS 2013 Solution File for webgrease and entity framework.

    I tried to publish from a different development system with webdeploy, fiesystem, remote IIS methods they did not work.

    I also tried Deploy->Export and Deploy->Import options from windows 2008 R2 servers. it was not successful. Also I could not find msdeploy on the production server :(

     I was getting this error

    Could not load file or assembly 'WebGrease, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' or one of its dependencies

    But after installing VS 2013 and restoring the Nuget packges on the production system, then publishing from the production  system to its IIS it worked.

    Is there a possible way to install these runtimes using powershell 

    Please help on how to install these runtimes on production system without using VS 2013.
