Personal Site Starter Kit - How to get started RRS feed

  • Question

  • User674127219 posted

     I downloaded the starter kit and found the zip files. I expanded the files into a directory and don't know how to get going. Visual Web Developer wants a project file and I don't see one.

    I also don't see any "installation" file. This is probably very obvious, but not to me.

    This is all very new to me, so be kind.

    Thanks,

    Tom

    File -> Open Site and navigate to the extracted file and open

    Thanks, I had not used the "open site" in any of the tutorials and never tried that.

    Now a more ominous problem. Build errors: When I try to build default.aspx, along with more than twenty warnings, I have two errors. The errors say that two .vb files do not exist. The files are there, in the same directory. So, I have no clue what to do next.

    Thanks again for the quick reply,

    Tom

     Sorry for the bother, the missing files thing was my mistake.

    Any ideas about this build error:

    Theme 'White' cannot be found in the application or global theme directories.

    The file referenced was web.config, line 9.

    Hey,

    Did you download the source files for the Starter Kit, or did you download the vsi file for it.

    If it is the latter, double click on the vsi file, and this will add the Personal Website Starter Kit Template to your Visual Studio installation.

    From there, simply click on File | New | Web Site, and then, in the window that opens up, select "Personal Web Site Starter Kit" and that will roll out a new web site including all the functionality of the Starter Kit ready for you to play with.

    Hope that helps!!

     I am having this same issue. I downloded the zip file, extracted it to my templates folder. Opened it as you described and have the following error: by the way, I am using the new Visual Studio 2010 Beta. Any help is always welcome. Thanks in advance.
