That title may not be very self explanatory to most of you. At my day job I am currently transitioning from Legacy ASP 3.0 code to ASP.NET 1.1 code and I am also teaching myself Ruby and Rails. I know what you are saying, “That is a really silly thing to do Dewayne!” and it is true but it is what I am doing.
So here is my question for my avid readers, What is the BEST Way to setup an ASP.NET solution in VS.NET 2003 to use ASP Classic with COM objects and ASP.NET 1.1 while converting the code base to ASP.NET?
I am especially having some fun with the COM objects because the creators of the objects put them at the top of the web app. tree instead of inside the tree so I am trying to figure out how to move them safely into the bin directory under the web app in my solution.
I am having so much fun with Ruby on Rails that the ASP.NET stuff feels outdated and clunky and just flat out UNFUN that I am really having a hard time motivating myself to learn what I need to learn in ASP.NET when I have such a shiny tool in Ruby on Rails.
