[thelist] A VERY basic VS 2005 Question

Still does not work.  But - it seems to be related to the type of
project.  I played around a little last night.  If I create a new
"project" then everything works as you describe.  But, if I create a new
"web site" then there seems to be no Project Designer.

Unless I am not seeing something obvious, creating a new "project" does
not seem to be the right way to go about creating a web based project,
as it then does not allow the creation of .aspx and .ascx pages.

I'm still vey new to VS 2005 and .NET 2.0.  Much to learn, and so far,
it's been mostly frustrating.  From what I see on the forums on MSDN,
the frustration is wide spread.  There is a LOT of anger towards
Microsoft over VS 2005.  I am getting there myself.

1. Open the Solution Explorer by selecting "Solution Explorer" from
   the "View" menu on the main menu bar.
2. Right click on the root node (not the "My Project" node) of the
   Project Explorer's TreeView.
3. Select "Properties" from the context menu.
4. A new window will open in the main tab area of VS, with tabs
   along it's right border including "Signing" and "Compile".
