Are you sure that was the link you intended to post? It was a very short
thread, and the only detail I saw was "that rings a bell.. FrontPage Server

Personally, I don't do much ASP.NET, so I have never encountered the problem
myself. This particular problem does not manifest itself with other types of
projects, such as windows forms and class libraries.

However, I have been told that using regular class library projects instead
of web projects for ASP.NET development is an acceptable workaround. Set the
output directory for the class lib project to the \bin dir of the web app
instead of \debug\bin. See
