    Visual Studio Web Deploy not working

    Hey guys,

    I have a problem. When trying to deploy an Umbraco website via Web Deploy in Visual Studio, I get the following error:

    Error   2   Could not open Source file: Could not find a part of the path 'D:\Dev\...\umbraco\Install\Views\Web.config;\umbraco\Install\Views\Web.config'.
    

    This happens with all web.configs at random, so sometimes it's the above one, sometimes it's the one in the xslt folder, etc.

    This issue does seem to only happen in Umbraco v7.2.5 and 7.2.6. Or at least, those are the versions of the websites I have encountered the problem. Is there any known way to fix this? Or is my only option to upgrade both websites to a newer version?

    Edit: I also seem to have this problem with a new Umbraco 7.3 project. Which is typical as I have several other 7.3 projects that do work.

    Edit2 : On a completely fresh instance of Umbraco 7.3 the problem doesn't happen. I can't find a difference between the projects though.

    Hi Dave

    You should delete the install folder before deploying, as you have already installed Umbraco, it is no longer needed.

    Try that and see if it cures the problem - if not then post the new error and we can see from there.

    Regards

    If I do that I get the error on the XSLT web config:

    Could not open Source file: Could not find a part of the path 'D:\Dev\...\umbraco\Xslt\Web.config;\umbraco\Xslt\Web.config'.

    Hi

    Properties on the config file are set to "do not copy" to output directory. So that is why. In the config it is set to not allow public download of any files within the folder.

    Seems odd, because the main web config has the same setting. It does not appear anyone else is having the issue, so it must be a Visual Studio project issue. If you deploy via ftp, would the same happen I wonder?

    Regards

    Gary

    That is definitely not the problem as my test project can publish just fine (empty Umbraco installation) and there it is also set to "Do not copy". Also setting it to "Copy always" or "Copy if newer" does not resolve the issue.

    As far as ftp goes, we don't have that set-up on the server, so I can not test that. A file system publish works just fine though, though I prefer to use web deploy as that reduces the change of mistakes if set up correctly.

    Hi Dave

    Here is a really stupid question, debug set to true or false?

    Odd how fresh install deploys but "used" doesn't. Having debug set to true can cause some weird stuff to happen.

    Other than that, need to think some more.

    Debug is set to true as I want to release to a test server, so I need debugging. But it is also on in the empty project so I doubt that is the problem.

    Hi Dave,

    Could you make sure that the Web.config files are included in the project? WebDeploy will only deploy files that are included in the .csproj files.

    I checked the .csproj file and the web.config is included in it's content tree.

    Edit: To test I also excluded and then re-included the web.config, but I still get the same error.

    Apply to both \umbraco\Install\Views\Web.config \umbraco\Xslt\Web.config

    Hope that helps.
