Please take note of this part of your assignment requirements:
<b>Zip (compress) the Visual Studio Web site folder into a .zip file to submit</b>
The visual studio web site folder does not contain any solution/project files for Visual Studio. When you create a web site in Visual Web Developer, the web site folder contains ONLY the web contents. So there is no way to automatically open the site in Visual Web Developer. Your assignment asked for just the web site folder. So that is what you want to turn in.
Now, if you create a visual web developer project as a web application instead, it will not place the contents into a web site folder. Instead all of the files will be inside of a project folder. This isn't what you are supposed to turn in. However, if I send you the site in project-version, you can open it up directly in Visual Web Developer by selecting open-project and then opening the .sln file.
Here it is:
Unzip this file, then open project in Visual Web Developer and select the SLN file. That will open the site so that you can view the code.
However, if you make any changes to the code, now you will have changes to files that are not in the "Web Site" folder because you have opened as a project rather than a web site. That is very easy to get around. All you need to do is, when ou are ready to submit to your class, simply select all of the web site files and zip them up. Do not include any of the Visual Studio files. So that would include:
Those are the only files that you would want to zip.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
