    "Obi Wan, you are our last hope..."

    Hello everyone!
    So, we publish our solution using post-compiled "option". Now, due to some new requirements, we need to change that to pre-compiled. Turns out that the option of pre-compiled is giving some headache since it keeps saying:
    The file '/Samples/whatever.cs' does not exist.
    But... BUT the file is there. I already searched the web up and down and, so far, nothing... sadly.
    Any help will be most welcome!

    Forgot:
    That happens when we are trying to publish to the destination folder. When we publish without the "precompile" option, it turns out ok; but when the precompile option is checked, we get the previous error.

    We are using a WAP solution. So i right click on the solution that i want to publish, choose publish option, a model dialog will appear with several options:
    >Profile
    >Connection
    >Settings            FilePublishOptions     CheckBox Precompile during publishing  (here is where i check the precompile option)
    >Preview

    When i choose to publish the solution builds as expected but doesnt publish as it was suppose to due to some "missing" file that isnt missing after all.

    I also get, on another dialog, with the following error:
    "error aspparse the file does not exist"

    Any help will be more than welcome!
    Kind regards

    Hi Luke skywalker,

    You could try to set build action from compile to content while it could enable the file to output without compile:

    If it is an aspx page, you could check whether there is something wrong with Codebehind or codefile=.

    You could also try to deploy to an empty website.

    If all the things above doesn't work, try to publish and copy the doesn't existed file separately.

    Best Regards,

    Hello,

    Sorry for the huge delay with my reply.

    After a couple more of weeks, we found out that it was another issue that was triggering that error.

    Thanks so much for your time and attention!

    Kind regards


    Leo.
