    My application got some serious problems regarding to asp.net version and other Nuget miss much versions and I cant build it due to these incompatibilities. I am looking for a solution to run my app in production server from last successful compiled build. is that possible or not? i need to run my app urgently and i have no time for rebuilding.

    the application has developed in asp.net version 4.0 , visual studio 2010.

    Looking forward to hear something.

    Hi TheThroneKing,

    Do you mean you want to recover project from last complied build? Complied web application can be decomplied with .NET reflector. And the source will be readable but not as original. So if you want to use this way to recover your project, you need a lot of works to do. As you said you got serious problems then you want to use this way as a workaround. It is better if you create a new thread and show detailed information about your problems when build your project. Maybe you could get answer in this community forum. So that you can save more time.

    Best Regards,

    I would look at the DLLs version on the production machine to install the corresponding nuget packages back into my VS solution. Is this what you meant ?

    Sure as far as you have your last "good" compiled build. Just upload all the files to production server and you are good to go.

    After this you could have all the time in the world to resolve your .net version and nuget mismatch problems.
