Publish website

May 7, 2013 at 1:48 PM
I am trying to set-up a build process template that will build our ASP.NET / MVC web application and then perform a “Publish Web” to file system. I want to be able to specify where the website will be published, this will then be copied to the web server manually by QA
Does anyone have a template based on the build extensions that will do this?

Thanks in advance

OK. Figured out that it is already doing this to the folder bin_PublishedWebsites_SolutionName_

All I need to do now is figure out how to copy these files to a drop folder

Tried using RoboCopy but always get:
Exception Message: Return Code 16. Serious error. RoboCopy did not copy any files. This is either a usage error or an error due to insufficient access privileges on the source or destination directories. (type FailingBuildException)

Now using the standard CopyDirectory method
