Default convert tbh to Web application project in VS 2008


I'm trying to convert my project to a web application project in VS 2008.
So I created my own ProfileCommon class, but this has some problems with my Groups in web.config

<group name="Preferences">
<add name="Theme" type="String" allowAnonymous="true"/>

<add name="Culture" type="String" defaultValue="en-US"/>
<add name="Newsletter" type="mysite.BLL.Newsletters.SubscriptionType"/>


I get the following error :

string culture = (HttpContext.Current.Profile as ProfileCommon).Preferences.Culture;

Error 102 xxx.ProfileCommon' does not contain a definition for 'Preferences' and no extension method 'Preferences' accepting a first argument of type xxx.ProfileCommon' could be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?) C:\Users\xxx\Old_App_Code\BasePage.cs 22 74 xxx

which is correct since it's not defined in my class, but that's the issue. how do I define this in my class which now looks like this
public class ProfileCommon : ProfileBase


public static ProfileCommon GetUserProfile(string username)

return Create(username) as ProfileCommon;

public static ProfileCommon GetUserProfile()

return Create(Membership.GetUser().UserName) as ProfileCommon;

[SettingsAllowAnonymous(false)]public string Description

get { return base["FirstName"] as string; }

set { base["FirstName"] = value; }

[SettingsAllowAnonymous(false)]public string Location

get { return base["LastName"] as string; }

set { base["LastName"] = value; }

[SettingsAllowAnonymous(false)]public string FavoriteMovie

get { return base["Gender"] as string; }

set { base["Gender"] = value; }


so the main quesiotn is : how can you best convert to a 2008 web application project. (this way I can use urlrewriter which needs an assemblyname to run the code)

Web application projects, in use since VS 2005 (I think), do not support the ProfileCommon class. There are a couple of free third-party projects that I know of that solve the issue, but AFAIK only one of them works seamlessly with VS 2008: WebProfileBuilder. You can Google that and download it from the msdn code page. Install instructions are provided in the readme.txt file included in the download package, but to sum up:
1. Run the installer.
2. Add this Import statement to your project file. (see special notes below)
    <Import Project="$(MSBuildExtensionsPath)\WebProfileBuilde r\WebProfileBuilder.targets" />
3. Done.
To do step 2 just open the .csproj file (or .vbproj if you use vb projects), search for Import Project, and add the aforementioned statement just below an existing one.
Note that, strictly speaking, ProfileCommon will still be unavailable, but you can replace all functionality by doing this:
//ProfileCommon profile= this.Profile; // doesn't work on web app projects
 WebProfile profile = new WebProfile(HttpContext.Current.Profile);
Known issues:
In some versions, WebProfileBuilder can't create the required webprofile.cs file; yet, if you create a dummy file by such name (with notepad.exe, for instance) in your project's root folder WebProfileBuilder will overwrite the file's contents.
Hope this helps.

                            <mb:WelcomeBox ID="WelcomeBox1" runat="server" />
                        <mb:RssReader id="rssReaderGeneric" runat="server" Title="RSS Reader" meta:resourcekey="rssReaderGenericResource1"/>
                        <mb:RssReader id="rssLatestArticles" runat="server" Title="Latest Articles"
                           RssUrl="~/GetArticlesRss.aspx" meta:resourcekey="rssLatestArticlesResource1"
                           MoreText="More articles..." MoreUrl="~/BrowseArticles.aspx" />
                        <mb:RssReader id="rssLatestThreads" runat="server" Title="Latest Threads" meta:resourcekey="rssLatestThreadsResource1"
                           RssUrl="~/GetThreadsRss.aspx?SortExpr=LastPostDate DESC" MoreText="More discussions..." MoreUrl="~/ShowForums.aspx" />
                        <mb:RssReader id="rssMostActiveThreads" runat="server" Title="Most Active Threads" meta:resourcekey="rssMostActiveThreadsResource1"
                           RssUrl="~/GetThreadsRss.aspx?SortExpr=ReplyCount DESC" MoreText="More discussions..." MoreUrl="~/ShowForums.aspx" />
                        <mb:RssReader id="rssLatestProducts" runat="server" Title="Latest Products" meta:resourcekey="rssLatestProductsResource1"
                           RssUrl="~/GetProductsRss.aspx" MoreText="More products..." MoreUrl="~/BrowseProducts.aspx" />
                        <mb:PollBox id="pollGeneric" runat="server" ShowArchiveLink="False" ShowHeader="False" meta:resourcekey="pollGenericResource1" />

                  <asp:PageCatalogPart ID="PageCatalogPart1" runat="server" Title="Local Page Catalog" meta:resourcekey="PageCatalogPart1Resource1" />
