MOSS Development problem

  Asked By: Bhavika    Date: Mar 08    Category: MOSS    Views: 667

We migrated to MOSS 2007 and I have a couple of application that I did with
VS2005 that work fine. We did another migration to a development environment
and when I tried the same applications I get an error:

The Web application at http://[servername]/sites/cmdcal/ could not be found.
Verify that you have typed the URL correctly. If the URL should be serving
existing content, the system administrator may need to add a new request URL
mapping to the intended application.

The only difference I can find is that when I try to create a new project on
the development box and select VB, I don't see SharePoint ans a sub heading.
What am I missing?

You won't see Sharepoint as a project type in VS2005 unless you've
installed either Visual Studio Extensions for WSS(VSeWSS)
or Visual studio Extensions for SharePoint Workflow. And you won't
see it under VB unless you have the most recent copy of VSeWSS since
previous versions were C# only. But you don't actually need them to do
development under VS2005. However, if you are trying to use VS2005 to
create a web site inside SharePoint it won't work. VS2005 can't see
sites inside the sharepoint database. You use it to develop Features,
Solutions, Event Handlers, Workflows, and webparts and then deploy them
to MOSS.
