C# - Web.config Transforms Not Being Applied On Either Publish Or Build Installation Package?

Jun 16, 2010

Today I started playing with the web.config transforms in VS 2010. To begin with, I attempted the same hello world example that features in a lot of the blog posts on this topic - updating a connection string.

I created the minimal example shown below (and similar to the one found in this blog). The problem is that whenever I do a right-click -> "Publish", or a right-click -> "Build Deployment Package" on the .csproj file, I'm not getting the correct output. Rather than a transformed web.config, I'm getting no web.config, and instead the two transform files are included.

What am I doing wrong?

'Add Config Transforms' And One Click Publish Option Not Working When Upgraded From Visual Studio 2005 To Visual Studio 2010

Jul 28, 2010

I just recently upgrade my asp.net web project from visual studio 2005 to visual studio 2010. The upgrade was successful with no problems however im missing some features with this project. The One Click Publish feature(which is greyed out) in the header area of Visual Studio 2010 and the Add Config Transforms feature which is no where to be seen when you right click on web.config. When i create a new web project straight from visual studio 2010, these options work fine.

Configuration :: Using Transforms In Web.config

May 6, 2010

I am trying to utilize Transforms in my Web.Configs.It is working when I publish, however, if I run from Visual Studio they seem to have NO effect.

I am using VS2010 / .NET 3.5 project / Silverlight 3.

I used these two as my primary references. http://vimeo.com/10781314 / http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd465326.aspx

I've tried several ways..
1. Overriding my Connection Setting using Transform Replace, match on name
2. Just using Insert in the Release.Config with no setting in the Main Web.Config.

Both ways DO work on Publish, but neither work in VS. # 1 shows the original when I'm just trying to run from VS and # 2 Crashes on this line string scontest = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["DBTest"].ToString();

Here is my Main Web.config for try # 2

<!--<add name="DBTest"connectionString="Server=MAINWEBCONIFGBox; Database=personal; User; password=P@ssw0rd" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />-->

Web.Release.Config for try # 2

<add name="DBTest"
connectionString="Server=RELBox; Database=personal; User Id=admin; password=StagingPersonalPassword"
providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" xdt:Transform="Insert" />

Web.config Transforms Add Extra Line Returns Where There Are None

Aug 26, 2010

When my Web.config transforms it is adding a new line before the end value tag in my ApplicationSettings. This new line is showing up in the setting and causing an exception. Example:


<setting name="FilePath" serializeAs="String">
<setting name="FilePath" serializeAs="String" xdt:Transform="Replace" xdt:Locator="Match(name)">

Published Web.config:

<setting name="FilePath" serializeAs="String">

The end value tag being on its own line is causing problems. Does anyone know how to get it to stop doing this?

Visual Studio Public & Web.config Transforms Features

Feb 2, 2011

I work in an development group in an enterprise, where we strive to seperate business units and their responsibilities. So for example, I am in the development group and we are responsible for all tasks related to developing applications. We have other roles such as dbas, or operational roles that are outside of our group and are responsible for things like deployment, server maintenance, etc.

I'm looking at features in VS such as the publish web app feature and the web.config transform feature and reading about them in blogs and various other places. Based on the majority of what I read it always seems that the writer is assuming that the developer is managing things like connection strings, user names, passwords for the different environments in web config transforms, then publishing to a remove server in some kind of production environment (be it live, or test or staging, etc).

An example is here. In our environment, and I assume others too, the scenario is somewhat more complex than is usually portrayed. The development group may not know where any of what they've developed is deployed. And administrators may move servers,databases etc and update configuration as characteristics of the environment dictate. So in these cases, how does web.config transforms help? Publish can still potentially be used locally to build artifacts for a deployment package but even you'd probably want to use some automated build manager instead.

So is publish and transforms really more suited for more rudimentary development processes where the barrier between development and operations is very grey? Or am I missing something? It just seems that a lot of things I've reading about this kind of thing have good intentions but are somewhat superficial in the context of a more defined development process.

Interested to know others opinions and experiences on this.

Visual Studio :: Web.config Transforms For Web Site Projects

Apr 8, 2010

Does anyone no why web.config transforms are not available for Web Site Projects in VS2010. I thought that Web Site Projects where once introduced as the successor of Web Application Projects. But now the lack the deployment feature which I would really like to use.

Maybe someone knows a workaround, without having to convert 70 websites? Converting to Web Application Projects isn't a real option because I use Table Profile Provider by Hao Kong, which doesn't work with this type of project.

Sql Server - How To Create An Installation Package

Sep 7, 2010

We have built an ASP.NET application in 4.0 (we can change it to 3.5 if necessary) with a SQL Server database.

I am looking to create an installation package (exe or msi) so that I can provide this file to my clients and they can install it on all of their laptops. This asp.net application will be running on laptops that don't have access to the internet. Some of these laptops have XP Home, Win 7 Home, and other windows operating systems and not all of them have IIS installed. Is there some sort of simple application that I can use to create an Installer application where it will install IIS or some other web server, SQL Express, and .NET framework 4.0. If these applications are installed already, then it shouldn't install it.

Installation :: Add Third Party Package To Project?

Jul 7, 2010

I am having a silly beginners problem with ASP.Net/Visual Studio 2010. I would like to integrate a number of third party packages into my asp.net MVC app (e.g. CKEditor, TinyMCE.) During the prepwork I sooner or later end with instructions to the order of "copy the package into your project/scripts directory". Sounds easy but I still can't figure out how to do it.

For the time being I trick visual studio into adding the package by adding a blank directory, then go to windows exporer to copy files into the directory, then go back to visual studio to add them one by one. That works for a few javascripts but not for a more complex package. Clearly there must be a better way to add a third-party hierarchical structure to a project, right?

Installation :: Test Setup Package On IIS6 Website?

Jan 17, 2011

I am working on a setup package that installs a web site on IIS7 and IIS6. I've already made it for IIS7, now I need to make it for IIS6. But I am working under windows 7 so I can't install IIS6 on it. Any way, I have to test my setup project. What are the ways to do it (preferrably free and legal ;) ) ? I can think of a remote connection to a machine that already has IIS6 and using a virtual machine, for example virtualbox.org . But even though virtualbox.org is free, WinXP with IIS6 isn't ;) .

Configuration :: Include IIS Settings From IIS Manager Breaks Deployment Package Build?

Jul 26, 2010

Im trying to build a deployment package out of VS2010 against a web project and want to include all IIS settings as configured in IIS Manager. However when i enable this i get the following error message

Object of type 'manifest' and path


Now this error makes very little sense as the specified application does exist in Default Web Site. I've checked the spelling. I've tried having ISV as a virtual directory and as an Application and tried with and without the ISV folder.

On the Web page i hae the Project URL set to [URL] On the Package/Publish tab IIS web site name is set to "Default Web Site/ISV/Web.Crm.Framework/"

Bing/Google search turn up very little on this and the documentation is not really detailed enough.

Configuration :: Using VS2008 To build / Compile Web Application And Then Publish It To The Server?

Jul 27, 2010

I'm relatively new to actually publishing sites on my own..Anyway, right now I am using VS2008 to build / compile my web application and then publish it to the server. Simple enough, until I want to change several of the code behinds, and don't want to spend 30 minutes re-publishing several thousand documents.

I have been reading that publishing via VS is not the best approach, so I guess I have two questions:

1. Using VS2008, is there a way to build the project and publish only certain parts of the project such as the pre-compiled code or better yet have VS only update the code that has been changed on the server? I suppose I could simply publish it to my local drive and pick apart the files from there / is there a better way?

2. In your opinion what is the best deployment strategy?

Visual Studio :: Unable To Understand The "build Deployment Package" In VS 2010

Jul 22, 2010

I don't understand how to use this feature called "Build deployment package" in VS 2010. I go to my properties and go to package/publish web and setup it up. I click "Create deployment package as zip"

I then build the deployment package and get a zip file.

When I look into and start drilling down in the folders I find I get a path like this


I don't understand why it makes all these folders and on top of it why is it my path to where my soultion sits. I don't like the fact that now everyone can look in the zip and see my accoutn name, where the file was sitting, that I am using subversion.

Then it makes it so confusing to when a error happens. I deployed it on my IIS windows 2008 server and ran it and I had a error show up. It pointed to the file where the error occured and the path was point to my desktop.For the longest time I could not understand why it was pointing to my windows 7 machine desktop when it was running on a windows 2008 server located in a different country.

It was not until I found out with the zip path it made sense. But that is confusing when it is pointing to paths that don't exist on that computer.

How can I change this?
