If you use the Copy Project feature by using the FileShare method in Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2002, the feature may not work when you copy between two computers that are on different domains.
Note You can use the Copy Project feature with two computers that are on different domains by using Microsoft FrontPage without errors. You can also manually copy the project to the remote server by using the Universal Naming Convention (UNC) path.
You may receive the following error message when you use the Copy Project feature to copy a project from a computer that is on one domain to a computer that is on a different domain:
Unable to create web project 'ProjectName'. The UNC share '\\ShareName\ProjectName"' does not exist or you do not have access
This problem occurs because the path that the project is copied to does not match the path from the source destination. The trailing virtual root path must match the virtual root alias. For example, if you create a virtual root that is named MyVRoot, the folder that it maps to must have MyVRoot as the trailing folder name. In this example, the folder must be c:\MyVRoot or c:\FolderName\MyVRoot. If you are copying a project to a remote share, the virtual root must be at least two levels below that share. For example, \\Server1\ShareName\SubFolder1\MyVRoot. You must have the SubFolder1 folder or another intermediate folder).
