Can't find BuildAction property for web project files RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

      I have spend few hours trying to find BuildAction property in properties window for asp.net project. It simply doesn't exist for any file of the project. It exist in any other project, but not in this one. Also I can't unload the web project as well.

      Do you have any idea what is wrong?

    I'm using: 

    Microsoft Visual Studio 2005

    Version 8.0.50727.42  (RTM.050727-4200)

    Microsoft .NET Framework

    Version 2.0.50727

  • Web projects do not support this property. Remember that webs use a server side build model in VS2005, thus the build happens at runtime by the Asp.Net runtime. You should take a look at ScottGu's blog. In particular, http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2005/08/21/423201.aspx

  • I had the same problem but I was using Visual Web Developer 2005 Express Edition. I found out after moving my project to Visual Studio 2005 C# or VB Express 2005 i saw the build action property
