Does StarTeam support Visual Studio _Web Site Projects_?
The StarTeam Visual Studio 2005/2008 Integration does not support _Web Site Projects_, as stated (somewhat inaccurately) in the release notes:
“The Visual Studio 2008 Release 2 Integration does not support source code operations on Web Site projects that use a local IIS server. This is a known bug. There is no workaround other than using the embedded client and pointing it to the local files in the IIS server.”
The Microsoft _Web Site Project_ type is an old way of defining projects and has been replace with _Web Application Projects_ by Microsoft. As a result, the StarTeam Visual Studio 2005/2008 Integration supports only _Web Application Projects_. Microsoft has provided a handy utility to convert _Web Site Projects_ into _Web Application Projects_ ([http://webproject.scottgu.com/CSharp/Migration2/Migration2.aspx]).
