I'm using a simple cmd batch file to deploy my Asp.net MVC web application to server network share.
The problem I'm having is that my DLLs can't be simply replaced by new files since existing ones are in use by the IIS. I'm not an admin on the server so I don't have rights to run
What I can do is I can open root web.config file and save it, hence forcing IIS to stop my web application and as a result to this I can replace my assemblies.
Since I deploy my app using an automated batch file I'd like to include this web.config file re-save inside it before I start deploying DLLs. Anybody knows how can this be done in cmd? Maybe a change of the file's last modified timestamp would suffice.
I suppose I could as well write a console application that would change last modified timestamp to
DateTime.Now but I don't want to write the code myself. Anyone knows of such existing code on the net, since I can't find it. Or even a command prompt tool (console app without user interaction)?
