    Hi, Martin

    Yes, you should to delete 'install' folder. It's recomandation of developers.

    For setting path to login you can use UrlRewriting module.

    Thanks Alex.

    I've deleted the install folder.

    Should I be deleting any other folders?

    I am still getting the umbraco setup process if I go to www.mydomain.umbraco.aspx

    Hi Paul,

    I have solved the issue by excluding the folder from deployment.

    You need to open your .csproj file and add a new property group as follows



    Hope it helps!

    Hi Simon, 

    I have tried adding the property group excluding the Umbraco\Install folders into my project file (.csproj), to no avail, its a tad frustrating that a the install folder regenerates when doing a build/deployment to azure websites especially after reading everywhere that it should be deleted.

    This seems to be a side effect of using the Umbraco Nuget package, any ideas where i may be going wrong?

    Thanks in advance.

    Xander, from memory the problem is one of your dll's. I think maybe Umbraco.Core. It compares it's version number with that in the base web.config file and will prompt the upgrade if they do not match. I had to manually download the correct version from the downloads page here and add it in VS after a nuget update. Very frustrating.
