Custom build DLL naming for ASP.NET projects

Posted 05 November 2007 - 11:27 AM

I inherited an ASP.NET project and the Vishal Studio files to control it. But, the BIN directory had the DLL code being output in a DLL with the name like "custom_dll_name.dll" which isn't the name of the project or set in any project or solution properties that I can find. Instead, when I build the project it makes about 6 DLLs with the App_Code.dll, and some other seemingly random DLL names.

How do I control the output DLL name for a precompiled website in VS 2005? I have done it for VB.NET programs before, to control the compiled EXE name, but not for an ASP.NET website before. All of my previous ASP.NET sites have always just generated a regular DLL output and I have been happy with it. But they want a custom output DLL name and I can't figure out how they did it.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0
