  1. I am using Windows XP and Visual Studio 2010. When I get to the last step(publish), when I click publish I dont get the Publish Web Window similar to the one in your screen shot. It looks different and there is no option of importing the PublishSettings file. I copy pasted the data but still I am getting Invalid Web Deploy service URL error. Where am I going wrong (apart from using Windows XP…totally wrong :P)
