Correct command to compile a project RRS feed

  • Question

  • What is the correct MSDN forum, please, for the following question:

    I am trying to compile an ASP.NET (VB) project through the Command Prompt and have, again, visited the MSDN advice here:


    In C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET I have two folders: Framework64 and Framework and I thought that I had done this previously (quite a while ago) using the following:


    C:\>Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0. 30319>aspnet_compiler

    However, Command Prompt gives me the following error: 

    'Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.' is not recognized as an internal or ex
    ternal command,
    operable program or batch file.

    I thought maybe I had got it wrong, so I then used the following command:

    C:\>Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0. 30319>aspnet_compiler

    That is, the other Framework folder, but I then got the same error message as for Framework64.

    What am I doing incorrectly, please?

    I have Windows 7 (64-bit). 

    Thank you.

  • Hello,

    This should be asked in Microsoft's ASP.Net Visual basic.net forum:


    As Microsoft's ASP.Net forums are on a different platform, we cannot move the question for you.
