Default Creating APS.Net project from website

I have a friend that needs some new development on his company website. So, I got the ftp credentials and pulled the site down to my computer. In Visual Studio I did "create project from website". Here's the problem. When I try to run the site I get errors saying that I am missing several pages throughout the site. I can only presume that on some occassions he compiled the pages and copied the DLLs to the server while on others he just copied the codebehind pages up to the server. When I look at the files that were pulled into the project there are several .cs pages while some .cs pages are missing. There are DLLs in the bin folder that I assume hold some of the compiled codebehinds. What can I do about getting this site to run? Thanks.

Hi there,

You should get the DLLs on your local machine as well, so you can at least run the site. You won't be able to make changes to those pages directly as the code is compiled into the DLLs. However, you may be able to reverse engineer some of the code using RedGate's Reflector.
