How to: Create New Web Application Projects

You can create ASP.NET Web application projects using Visual Studio or Visual Web Developer Express. The Web application project type is an alternative to the Web site project. It uses a build model that creates a single assembly for the whole project.

The Web application project type provides the same Web project semantics that were introduced with Visual Studio .NET 2003 Web projects. However, it makes available all the features of Visual Studio 2008 and of ASP.NET 2.0 and later. For more information, see Web Application Projects Overview.

  1. In Visual Studio or , in the File menu, click New Project.

  5. In the Location box, type the name of the folder in which you want to store the pages of the Web application. Alternatively, click Browse to select a location.
