    HI Baiju

    i am not willing to make a exe which is editable by the users

    Thanks for your feedback.

    For this issue, I think you could modify the folder permission in IIS, grant read permission to Users.

    Right Click inetpub folder-> inetpub property -> permission for inetpub, and Read permission checked, Read and Execution unchecked.

    hope it helps.

    sorry , there is some confusion what i had asked for

    i am having a asp.net+vb code web with access database all are working fine even after my  installing the exe. my problem is when i had installed the exe the entire code get copied (source code) to the default web root folder. which can be (source code) copied and edited my someone. i want a precompiled type one to be there in root folder so that others cannot copy the (source code) and remake it

    The all you can do is to Publish the website first and include that folder part of your Setup project instead of the Project content files. This way only the Pre-Compiled files will be available at the web root folder.

    Depends on which version you use to develop follow the below links:-
