I'm building a new website and I have to set the build action on a couple of files in the App_Data folder, but when I click the Properties tab, there's no way to set it. (the option just plain isn't there). What's going on, and how do I fix it?

BTW, I tried the site as .Net 3.5 and .Net 4.0, and that didn't seem to matter.

I get this for all, leaving a folder. What kind of file type is it for which you are trying to set this build action?

Ok, I guess I get the issue.

Looks like you are working on a web application that is actually a website as per Visual Studio.
You would need to create a new web application and probably copy over the source files there.

I am sure, I don't need to share links for conversion.
That was it. Thanks.
