The Web Application Projects add-in provides a Visual Studio 2005 Web project model option that works like the Visual Studio .NET 2003 Web project model. Other developers, like myself found the migrating from Visual Studio .NET 2003 applications to the new Web site model in Visual Studio 2005 very confusing and impractical. So an add-in was created to address this situation providing a model that will be familiar to developers who don’t want to change how they structure their website.
This doesn’t mean that the new Website project model of Visual Studio 2005 will be removed, instead you can choose which model you prefer. Click here to download the update (add-in) to support Web Application projects.
