Bin Deploying MVC3 - 2/20/2011
I recently upgraded this site to MVC3. My hosting provider(DiscountASP) allows full trust but does not have the MVC framework(s) installed so I have to bin deploy all necessary DLLs for the MVC framework I am using much the same as you may have to in production environments.
With MVC2 the deployment was pretty simple, just include the System.Web.Mvc dll and everything worked. With MVC3 I expected to deploy System.Web.Mvc and System.Web.WebPages, surprisingly quite a few more were needed.
The list of required DLLs is..
- Microsoft.Web.Infrastructure - Not Part of MVC Futures as name suggests. Appears to be a part of the "ASP.Net WebPages" component that installs with MVC3
- System.Web.WebPages.Razor - interesting requirement since I am not using the Razor View Engine yet
