Can't publish web api project by Visual Studio 2015 Community RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, Please help me solve the problem that, I have built a asp.net web api project. when I click the 'publish' in Visual Studio 2015 Community, a message box says 'The Web Publishing extension is not installed which is required to publish. You can install it from http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=208120'. While I go to the website, there is no extension for Visual Studio 2015 Community. What should I do now?

    Thank you in advance.

  • Hi IoTGirl,

    Thank you for your answer. I have not found anything related from the gallery. Anyway I have found a solution that I directly point the physical path, advanced setting in iis, to the project folder. It works now:)

  • Hi James,

    Unfortunately I am not familiar with the web API but I have used a number of extensions with Community Edition. Can you find the extension you need this way? Can you find the component you need in the gallery?  https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd293638.aspx.
