    To better understand your issue, could you please clarify what you want?

    To automatically deploy ASP.NET web application, we can create Web Setup project to create MSI to install application on target machine. If we do so, user just clicks setup.exe and use wizard to install it.

    We also can implement custom configuration using Custom Action in Web Setup project, such as creating database in target machine.

    For more information, see http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2007/06/15/tip-trick-creating-packaged-asp-net-setup-programs-with-vs-2005.aspx


    I look forward to receiving your test results.

    Thanks for your reply.

    My needs is to deploy the asp.net application automatically at some time interval. The automatic deployment tool has to take latest version from vss and build application and deploy it to webserver. I thing you got my point.

    Thanks for your response.

    In this case, you can implement automatically deploy using command line, using Visual SourceSafe Get command line (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/661w6e3d%28VS.80%29.aspx) to get project from VSS and use aspnet_compiler (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms229863(VS.80).aspx) to compile it and then copy it to server.

    To execute it at some time interval, you can write windows service.

     I am facing the same problem as kulanthaivelu. Actually, I have some projects were built up by .Net Framework 1.1. The aspnet_compiler seems not support the .Net Framework 1.1. Could you please give me some advises?
