Deploying to non-default web site - revisited

A while back I posted a note on how to create a setup project in VS.Net that allowed you to deploy to a non-default web site.  Well, there's a problem with that.  It appears that if you have the .Net Framework 2.0 installed on your development machine and/or the web server you are deploying to, you will no longer be able to deploy ASP.Net 1.1 applications at all using that technique.  It appears that the newer DCPA.DLL that technique uses is incompatible with .Net Framework 2.0.  You can find out more here.  Fortunately, simply re-installing the older version of DCPA.DLL corrects it.  Unfortunately, that leaves you without a solution for deploying to a non-default web site, at least for now, if .Net Framework 2.0 is on the same machine.  But at least you'll know why your installs suddenly stopped working.
